Dear Greendell Families,

Happy New Year!


I hope your family enjoyed your winter break together. Although we may not have been able to see all of our loved ones in person, many families found creative ways to celebrate together, like spending time with each other over Zoom. My sons tried new recipes together, instead of making our traditional holiday meal. They loved the tamales and ramen they made and enjoyed creating new traditions.


With the uncertainty we have had over the past year and the unrest of recent days, it is even more important to provide our children with predictable routines that provide comfort and consistency. The simple acts of preparing a meal together, playing a favorite game, or going for a walk around the neighborhood mean so much. When everything around us seems overwhelming, refocusing on our families and taking the time to take care of ourselves and each other really helps.


I wish you all many special moments with your family, filled with fun and love.
