I want to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!  I hope each of you will enjoy the time with your friends and families and remember to give and share with those that might be in need.


Thank you to every member of our staff who works diligently to provide an education to our students.  Bless our children as they work and sometimes struggle through a star-crossed period in our history.  Thank you to those that support our children, teachers, and staff.  Our success as a school district ultimately hinges on this support from all the partners in the process of educating our children.


Please remember those in uniform whether they be military, police, emergency responders, or medical professionals. These men and women work through the holidays, often removed from their families, prepared to render assistance or to provide that ultimate sacrifice.


Let us not forget that the spirit of the season is one of love, generosity, and of goodness.  Be kind to your fellow man and remember, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (Harper Lee)


God Bless each of you and a Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!


Buddy L. Brown
