As we approach the winter break, I would like to thank the students, staff, parents and community members who are a part of helping to create an atmosphere of excellence in Moorhead Area Public Schools.
We had a great beginning to the academic year. Staff and students are engaged in teaching and learning in the classrooms. The science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses at the middle school and high school have been a great option for student learning. The biomedical course at Moorhead High School provides a strong academic focus in the science area.
The fall athletic season has wrapped up and winter sports have begun. The fall theater production “Peter Pan” was a wonderful experience both for the students involved and the audience members. The winter holiday musical celebrations are in full swing at schools across the district. There is so much to celebrate in our district.
Many of our students, as individuals and as members of clubs, generously give of their time and talent to help bring the holiday spirit to our community. The “Fill the Dome” project and the musical performances in the community provide a chance for our students to experience the joy of giving.
Beginning Dec. 23, winter recess begins. Schools will be closed for winter break. The district offices will be closed Dec. 24, Dec. 25, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Classes will resume Jan. 4, 2010.
It is my hope that you enjoy the winter recess with laughter and connecting with family and friends. I wish you and your families a happy holiday season and wonderful New Year.
