Dear Families,


Happy Holidays! Please remember that this is a season of giving. The holidays can also be celebrated by small gestures of friendship, thoughtfulness, and caring.


I am happy to tell you that we had a big group representing us at the Blackboard Award Ceremony- staff, families and students. We filled two rows! I was so honored to accept our certificate and glass APPLE on behalf of our school community. Both are on display in the office.


Finally- I would like to thank our office staff during this celebratory time of holidays and awards! Margaret- the secretary of the world- runs our school, and my life. Amy- manages our finances and translates many important documents- including this weekly letter. The staff- Margie, Maggie, Abby, Jennifer, Gail, Sonia, Dawn, Diana, and Erica- run the world of your children. They are with your children throughout the day- not only at lunch. These women wipe tears, find lost items, listen to secrets, solve problems, mediate arguments, coax smiles, hand out treats, and keep your children safe. They are strong and funny and wise, and they are our gifts.


I wish you all a restful break, safe trips, happy moments. I wish you all a Happy New Year and we will see you on Monday, January 5th!


With Respect,
