Message from the Principal

A valuable lesson from the tradition of Santa Clause is, too often, lost on society. The joy parents know when their little believers are certain that Santa brought them a gift creates a fond memory. Assigning the credit to Santa rather than taking it themself it is much more fun. Santa’s lesson: Give more credit than is due and accept less than is earned. I hope you had a great holiday!
