We are still glowing with pride from our first ever “Autumnfest,” an event that drew supporters and their families – 300 people in all – to the beautiful home of Michael and Judy Steinhardt in Bedford, N.Y., for a day of apple-picking, cider-making, a private tour of the Steinhardt’s unique animal collection, a special performance by the HLA Children’s Choir, chess matches, soccer, ping-pong, and other family-friendly games. The day may have started out misty, but the sun did ultimately shine through and gave us a perfect afternoon.  We are truly grateful.

Events like Autumnfest help advance the caliber of education in our network schools – in New York City (Brooklyn and Harlem), East Brunswick N.J., Washington D.C., San Diego, and Los Angeles. Our newest school will open in Minneapolis in 2015.

Here are some of the images from that excellent day. Once again, a big Thank You to everyone who helped make Autumnfest 2014 a huge success.
