Dear Spartanburg District One Students, Parents, Families, and Communities:
Traditionally, this is a busy time of the
year as the semester begins to wind down and plans of celebrating the upcoming
holidays begin to take shape. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone
for all they have done in making the start of this school year one of the best
ever! We have had a productive start
with our staff and students engaged in teaching and learning. Holiday dances, musical celebrations, theater
productions and winter sports are in full swing at schools across the
November launches the holiday season with
two national holidays during its month.
On Veteran’s Day, celebrated on November 11th each year, we
dedicate our respect and honor to all of those men and women who have fought,
and those who have died in service to our country. This year we have also participated in making
Christmas cards for our local veterans.
Our students created over 15,000 cards to be distributed to our
communities’ heroes. We remember their
sacrifices, and we pray that peace will one day be the common cause of all the
nations of the world, so that such sacrifices will no longer be necessary. So
when we celebrate our national day of thanks, let’s remember to give thanks,
not only for all that we have been blessed with, but also to thank those brave
men and women who have served in our nation’s military.
