A Principal's Perspective

Wow! We made it to the holidays! Thank you so very much for your energy, enthusiasm, and festive holiday spirit that helped make these last few weeks amazing for our students! Charla shared this video last year. I kept it to share again. It sure does speak to the heart.

Although a festive season, this is also a difficult time of year for those who have lost loved ones both family and friends. Recent or years past, friends and family members that are not with us are remembered during this season. I hope that you enjoy the holidays with friends and family to cherish this special time of the year. I am thankful for each of you. What a gift each of you are to your fellow colleagues, to me and most importantly your students. Thank you! Merry Christmas!

Be Innovative - Design the possibilities!
