The New Interdisciplinary School
December 2013
We have so much to be thankful for at the New Interdisciplinary School, as evidenced by this Tree of Thanks displayed at our Thanksgiving Feast. The children truly enjoyed this festive celebration!
  
We also have many exciting things in store for this December, including a Breakfast with Santa, and several opportunities to help NIS while doing your holiday shopping! You can even win a $25 gift card to Toys R Us!  Many BLACK FRIDAY weekly deals are available, too!  See below for more details!

 

Help NIS Today

Please don't forget to help NIS this holiday season by donating whatever you can to help us expand the programs and services we provide to our students. You can even sign up for our monthly giving program!  Having a hard time finding a perfect gift for someone?  Consider making a gift to NIS in their name. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.    Ask your company if they have a matching gifts program and make your gift go twice as far!  Call Susan Cali at 631-924-5583, ext. 128 or e-mail her for more information.
