As you begin your Christmas break tomorrow, I want you to know how blessed and fortunate I am to be your Superintendent. I know it has been difficult at school this year with all of the COVID precautions that we have had. It has been tough on everyone, but you have made me extremely proud in how you've handled it all. You are some of the finest students I have had the privilege of leading. During your Christmas vacation, I hope that you take time to understand the meaning and value of sharing such traditions with family and loved ones. Being a part of these special traditions instills in each of us the things that are most important to our family. Seeing grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, and lifelong friends come together to honor and acknowledge your religious and cultural heritage is one of the most important things you will do in life. While you may look forward to the presents and gifts that you may receive this Christmas, you'll forget about most of them over time, but you won't forget about the memories that you shared with the family you love.
Be safe in everything that you do. Enjoy the rest from school that you have earned. More importantly, though, have fun! From your proud Superintendent, have a blessed and Merry Christmas!
I can't wait to see each and every single one of you back at school on January 6th!
