Winter break will begin Monday. School will resume Jan. 4 with an "A" day.
The Talent Show was a great success, and a special thanks to all the contestants. Our third place winners were Jennyfer Reynolds-Strange, Brandon Dodge, Keely Cobb, Elizabeth White, and Connor Ferrel; a band performance with a unique twist!
Second place went to Albert Reed singing "Hallelujah" and playing his guitar.
And our first place winner was Molly Seals, who sang a self-written song, dedicated to Alex Parker, and played her guitar. Great job to everyone in the show and a special thanks to the crew!
DVDs of the show are for sale for $10. Contact Mr. Reedy if interested.
A wish for a healthy active holiday season ...
Safe holiday travel to wherever your final destination may be;
Snowflakes for "powder" skiing;
Special holiday "goodies" (with calories removed) for eating;
Bargain discounts for those elusive gifts, yet purchased;
Courteous shoppers, who smile and are willing to share those precious few parking spaces...
While the stressors of the holiday preparations may over whelm us, dare to make a difference by your own example!
Let's not forget the real reason for this special holiday season ... As we continue to reflect on the many blessings we all enjoy, let's remember those special family members and friends who may no longer be with us, as well as the many sons and daughters who may be serving abroad to protect our nation.
