Dear Bulldog Family:
With the holiday season upon us, our attention naturally begins to turn to thoughts of spending time with family and friends, the hustle and bustle of Christmas activities and the anticipation of good fortunes in a New Year.
While I don’t have the benefit of having worked in Burgin for many, many years and building relationships with people over that time, I have had the privilege of getting to know many of you over the past several months. Over time, as trust slowly is built, people have begun to share their lives and their circumstances with me. For this I will be always grateful. This is the human and personal side of my work which I enjoy so much.
However, it is also the time of year that so many of our children and families struggle with the challenges that make this time of year so difficult to enjoy. For this reason, it is important that we continue to draw on our collective attributes as a caring and compassionate school district and strive to support our students and families – as well as each other as friends and colleagues – as best we can.
The spirit of the holiday season gives all of us hope for good fortune and a fresh beginning in the New Year ahead. It is my wish that you will find joy in the holiday season and that the New Year ahead will be open to a world of opportunity.
It is important to enjoy your well-deserved break and recharge your batteries. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to our outstanding staff for their tireless efforts and contributions throughout the year at Burgin Independent Schools. My best wishes for a safe, relaxing, and fulfilling Christmas to you and all your loved ones.
