Warmest holiday greetings! This year we certainly are having a warm holiday season. The temperatures have been great and have allowed for our students to be outside playing and enjoying fresh air.
I would like to thank the students, staff, parents and community members who contribute so much in helping to create an atmosphere of excellence in Moorhead Area Public Schools. From the classroom, to the stage, to the football field, we have students who excel and are a source of pride for our community.
We have had a productive beginning to the academic year. Staff and students are engaged in teaching and learning in the classroom. Our students are demonstrating creativity while achieving academic standards. Winter sports are underway, after a successful fall sports season. The wonderful holiday musical celebrations are in full swing in our schools. Students are enjoying the sounds of the winter season.
Many of our students, both as individuals and as members of student organizations, generously give of their time and talent to help all enjoy the holidays. Again our students were involved in a very successful “Fill the Dome” event. Robert Asp Elementary School was recognized as a top school for collecting food for the project. Our student organizations and individual students work and participate in activities in the spirit of bringing in the New Year with hope and compassion.
Our students will be enjoying winter recess from Dec. 22-Jan. 2. School offices and the district offices will be closed Dec. 23-26 and Dec. 30-Jan. 2.
Again, to all our community members both in and out of the schools, I wish you a safe and healthy holiday season. May our new year together be filled with continued excellence and community spirit.
