Week of November 25, 2018

From the Head of School

“But Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck. You heard what Linus was saying out there. Those early Pilgrims were thankful for what had happened to them, and we should be thankful, too. We should just be thankful for being together. I think that’s what they mean by ‘Thanksgiving,’ Charlie Brown.” (Marcie, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving)

I am keeping this short and sweet -

We will be back with a full Newsletter on Sunday, December 2. Until then, we are including a few reminders below.

I hope that all of you have a restful, wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

Far may our song ring clear!

Carol Killebrew
