Dear Addison Families,
This week's Principal's Update is short as PTA hosted a Principal's Coffee on Tuesday when I shared my reflections of 2020 and outlook on 2021. If you missed the event and are interested in seeing it, click here for the recording.
It's been an extraordinary year full of challenges and silver linings. But overall, I feel tremendous pride for what we have been able to accomplish together. James Lane Allen, an American novelist, once said, "Adversity does not build character, it reveals it". I have seen amazing growth, resilience, and flexibility in our staff this past year so I believe this difficult time has both built and revealed character. Thank you also to our families who have encouraged and celebrated us throughout the journey.
School will be closed from Dec. 21- Jan. 6. Full Distance and "B" cohort students will return on Thursday, Jan. 7th. I wish you and your family respite and rejuvenation during the winter break. Happy Holidays and I look forward to partnering with you again in 2021 which is sure to bring us recovery and hope! Take care and stay safe.
