The busyness of Christmas can often leave us feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. As we rush around attending to last minute preparations and buying those last few gifts, we can sometimes forget the true meaning of Christmas.
During this Christmas season we pause and give thanks for:
• our students, who enrich our lives with their curiosity, exuberance, and creativity;
• our incredibly dedicated staff that instills in students a compassion for others and a love of learning;
• our parents, who support their children and encourage our efforts; and
• our trustees, who provide leadership and resources.
My wish for each of you is that you may find a quietness of mind and serenity in your heart as you discover again the many reasons to celebrate. And may you give and receive much love, joy, and peace this season.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
