December 16

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…so goes the popular Christmas carol. And it truly is! To have the gift of working with children five to fourteen years old as we lead up to the Christmas holiday is truly a blessing for us all. Yes, the noise level and excitement do increase in direct proportion to the decrease in focus within the classroom; however, it is difficult not to share in the joy and wonder of it all.

Today, the Teachers’ Lounge was filled with many, many wrapped shoe boxes filled with lots of useful goodies, assembled by our middle school students, that will go to low-income Seniors who may not otherwise receive Christmas gifts. The lower school students created a mound of diapers as well, which will be welcomed by the Tucson Diaper Bank. Out of their Christmas joy, our students are happy to give back to the community, making a difference for many families in our area. We give before we receive, and that’s a wonderful thing indeed. As we leave for our two-week holiday, on behalf of the faculty and staff of St. Michael’s School, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with possibilities. Thank you for sharing your children with us and for sharing their joy and wonder for this world. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Merry Christmas,

Margaret Moore

Head of School
