November 23rd - November 27th

Message of Gratitude

As we look forward to our Fall break from November 25th through the 27th we would like to extend a huge “Thank You” to students and families. Every day, we are moved and inspired by what we see in our students. Their determination and resilience are remarkable. Every day, we celebrate the amazing support of our parents and community. Every day, our hearts are full that our community is strong and working together through these trying times.

COVID will certainly change how we celebrate this year. Despite this fact we wish for each of you to have a safe, restful and joyous break. During this time of Thanksgiving, we want to once again share our gratitude for allowing us to be such an important part of your children’s lives. We will be thinking of all of you, we are truly in this together.

Mientras esperamos nuestras vacaciones de otoño del 25 al 27 de noviembre, nos gustaría extender un enorme "Gracias" a los estudiantes y las familias. Todos los días, lo que vemos en nuestros estudiantes nos conmueve e inspira. Su determinación y resistencia son notables. Todos los días celebramos el increíble apoyo de nuestros padres y la comunidad. Todos los días, nuestro corazón está lleno de que nuestra comunidad es fuerte y trabaja unida en estos tiempos difíciles.

COVID ciertamente cambiará la forma en que celebramos este año. A pesar de este hecho, deseamos que cada uno de ustedes tenga un descanso seguro, reparador y feliz. Durante este tiempo de Acción de Gracias, queremos compartir una vez más nuestra gratitud por permitirnos ser una parte tan importante de la vida de sus hijos. Estaremos pensando en todos ustedes, realmente estamos juntos en esto.

Finally we would like to remember our essential workers around the world and our community. Thank you to our first responders, to our hospital and medical staff, to our local grocery store workers, to our childcare workers, to our school district staff and all the essential personnel for working so hard to serve our communities. Your dedication, sacrifice and hard work is not going unnoticed! Please join us to send loving thoughts to these essential workers who need to know they are valued and cared for. They are the reason we can carry on, our light and the Superheroes of our communities.

Finalmente, nos gustaría recordar a nuestros trabajadores esenciales en todo el mundo y nuestra comunidad. Gracias a nuestros socorristas, a nuestro personal médico y hospitalario, a los trabajadores de los supermercados locales, a nuestros trabajadores de cuidado infantil, al personal de nuestro distrito escolar y a todo el personal esencial por trabajar tan duro para servir a nuestras comunidades. ¡Tu dedicación, sacrificio y arduo trabajo no pasan desapercibidos! Únase a nosotros para enviar pensamientos amorosos a estos trabajadores esenciales que necesitan saber que son valorados y cuidados. Son la razón por la que podemos seguir adelante, nuestra luz y los superhéroes de nuestras comunidades.
