December 22, 2022 

Good afternoon,

We are just about one day away from the start of our vacation week. For students, the week before a vacation is always a balance between excitement for vacation and maybe holidays, while simultaneously finishing up work in classes and taking end-of-unit assessments. 

For the adults, it often feels like a crawl to the finish line. There were some hints from the universe today that I might be ready for a break just as much as our students. I received a thoughtful gift from a colleague and friend with the note, “I was searching for a book that could be a real escape. Hope this is it!” When I was on lunch duty, another colleague stated, “You look really tired.” That was the not-very-subtle comment. I blame that comment on my wearing a mask where the only visible part of my face was my eyes. I was kind in my response, but yes, my eyes do show that I’m tired! The December vacation always marks a great time for some serious rest and rejuvenation before we start the new year in just over a week. 

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, the Winter Solstice, another holiday, or just a school vacation, I hope you have an enjoyable and safe time with your friends and family. 

Here are some dates to be aware of when we return in 2023:

  • Friday, 12/23: Last day before vacation, 2:36 dismissal
