A PROUD Picture

Things happening December 15-19, 2014

Your principal pauses....

Here are mine and others' thoughts about Christmas...

"The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other." -- Burton Hillis

"The only blind person at Christmas time is he who has not Christmas in his heart." Helen Keller

It is easy to get lost in the flurry of activity during the holiday season. May you get time to take in the beauty and true meaning of the season and have a Merry Christmas!

May you relax and have Christmas in your heart while wrapped in your happy family's love.

See you on January 5th!
