Dear JUHSD Community,
I hope you had a restful Thanksgiving break and found the time to enjoy the vacation with family and friends.
In the blink of an eye, it's now December! They say that December is the month of lights, snow, and feasts. A time to make amends and tie up loose ends. A moment to plan for the future while hoping your wishes come true. Though I know this year has not been the easiest, and we have faced challenges unlike none before, I encourage you to embrace this month with a renewed sense of hope for the coming semester and calendar year.
Give the next few weeks your all and know that winter vacation is just around the corner! Please have a restful weekend.
