Director's Desk

Director's DeskCongratulations to all of our graduating students and best wishes for a wonderful summer to those heading out on break! It has been a busy and productive year here at Himmelfarb. As I write this piece, our biggest student and faculty Art Show is underway. We have just finished a series of Healthy Living activities ranging from good foods with chocolate to ice skating. Our revamped web page debuted in early January and has been well received. The Himmelfarb Library App Shelf has proved particularly popular.
