Dear High School Parents and Students,

I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to this Christmas season. I love this time of year; although it can be busy and stressful, the hope and joy of the purpose of this season always seems to prevail. I hope each of you have already had opportunities to see and live out the hope, joy, and true reason for this season.
