We will have a regular Gurukul session today (03/02/14) starting at 4.05 pm. We will continue to discuss Ramayan in the temple and discussion with the kids and parents on how to proceed with preparing for Ramleela. We will ask for suggestions from the parents on which book of Ramayan we are going to use in preparation of the Ramleela. We will bring 4-5 different books on Ramayan today.
Community service announcements (these pertain to any issues which Gurukul parents might be interested to pursue for their kids, but there is no formal endorsement by Gurukul):

1) For kids who are not continuing in the class: We would appreciate your returning the Hindi binder so that it can be used for several new kids who have joined Gurukul recently. Seema Jee worked hard on to make those binders and would appreciate if they can be put to use for those who need them.
2) If a child is absent for THREE consecutive weeks, they cannot continue in the Hindi classes. It is disruptive and disrespectful to the teachers who are working hard as volunteers.
With best regards!
(On behalf of Gurukul parents and teachers)
P.S: "Salt Lake City Gurukul is a forum for children to discover, learn and appreciate their cultural roots, Indian and Hindu values. This is done through didactic teaching of Hindi language, games, yoga, stories especially those from Ramayan and Mahabharat, shlokas, bhajans, arts and crafts. There are NO fees associated with Gurukul attendance.
