As the fall semester concludes, this is a time to reflect on all that has been accomplished and begin to prepare for all that we hope to achieve in the New Year. The change in season from fall to winter represents opportunities for us to reflect on transition as well as celebration in the coming weeks. The Winter Break is also a time for us to practice self-care so that we can give our students and children our very best in the New Year.
Hustle and bustle abounds this time of year, but I strongly encourage you to make a conscious effort to focus on the people that mean most to you. Our strength as a school district and a community is our shared vision of preparing our children for the future.
Being a member of the LAUSD Family is one of the greatest gifts because we are all invested in the success of our students. Thank you for all that you have done to support the teaching and learning this semester. We look forward to the very best from all of you in 2016.
