It is safe to say that no one expected 2020 to be the year it was! The impact of the pandemic continues challenging us in many ways. Throughout this year, I have seen staff, students, and community members work incredibly hard to overcome the various obstacles we confronted. We are exhausted.
Winter break will bring a welcome respite. I sincerely hope all students and staff will give themselves the gift of “self-care.” Please make taking care of yourself a priority during winter break! Focus on relaxing, celebrating those around you who matter the most, and finding time to do what you enjoy!
This is the most important gift you can give to yourself and others. Treat yourself like the important amazing person that you are. Take care of you!
I wish everyone a rejuvenating winter break! Here’s to 2021, and the joy of hope for better tomorrows!
