Week of November 20th, 2022
Dear Page Hilltop Families:
At this time of year, we usually reflect back on things we are grateful for in our lives. Besides my personal family, I am most thankful for my Page Hilltop family!
- I am thankful for all of the amazing faculty and staff members who come to school each day to provide your children with quality learning experiences.
- I am thankful for my leadership team who are always there to support me and each other.
- I am thankful for all of our students (past & present) who put a smile on my face, joy in my heart, and a reason to come to school each day.
- I am thankful for all of our wonderful parents and family members who are always so supportive.
- I am thankful for all of the community members of Ayer who make up our "village".
No matter where you are going over the holiday weekend or who you will be spending time with, I hope you all stay safe and enjoy happy memories!
Watch next week's newsletter for a full listing of special events and activities that will occur during the month of December.
Thanks, as always, for sharing your children with us!

Matt Lutinski, Assistant Principal

WINTER TRADITIONS AROUND THE WORLD
At this time we welcome our families to share with us some of the "winter traditions" that are celebrated in various countries. We are not specifically speaking about just holiday traditions. We want to know what the winter solstice/season is like in different countries. What winter traditions/activities are celebrated?
We will be spotlighting some of these traditions in our upcoming winter chorus concert as well as future editions of the newsletter.
Please send an email or written note to Mr. Deppe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
