The Real Joy of the Holidays

I watched yesterday’s all-school chapel with a smile on my face. Of course, our children performed very well, but what really brought me so much happiness was hearing that our older students were incredibly complementary and supportive of our younger Dragons. 

Kindness. Community. Joy.

As we head into the holiday season, I see our values present in all that we do. Parents and faculty members have shared about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa in homeroom classes, reminding our students of the beauty in our differences. Grade 3 had a cookie exchange a week ago and also made sandwiches for the homeless. Grade 4 parents organized smores-making festivities using the fire pit on our new Exploration Playground. Our Middle School students decorated all the classroom doors during advisory, adding a little holiday spirit to the third floor. Grade 1 created beautiful ornaments out of cookie dough. 

Inclusivity. Thoughtfulness. Generosity. Fun. There is so much to celebrate about our community. 

Here’s a short video that we had a lot of fun making that we are sure will bring cheer to your family this season.
