Winter Break Dec 2020

Dear parents and guardians,

The holiday season is a busy one for Alexander Ferguson School. The continuous theme of the season and for this year is “Generosity". I also would like to add one for the season that we can all relate to “Let There Be Light!" With all of the chaos that we have endured over this past year, we need to continue to be the light for others and ourselves during the holiday season. There is a clear sense of the value of light in our lives this year. Many of you have been the light for others over this year. Many continue to volunteer your time assisting in our community. Many of you have been the recipients of someone being the light for you and helping you and your family move forward during this trying time.

As a learning community, we continue to focus our full attention on all of our academic responsibilities but we also make time in a variety of ways to “share our light".  We encourage you to watch our virtual winter concert and have some time to sing a few carols along the way. The Alexander Ferguson School Community continues to show a generous spirit. The community reaching out to make sure that the needs of our needier families are met always touches us. Thank you so much to our parent volunteers who spearheaded our Go Fund Me fundraiser this. We were able, with the assistance of many community members, to provide gift cards for more than a dozen of our families so that they will have a Merry Christmas.

Today we will say farewell to your children as they leave for winter break. On January 4th, we move to online learning. There are many opportunities for each one of us to be the light for others. As others see us being the light, it becomes contagious. We hope the holidays and Christmas vacation are a time of recreation and relaxation with family and friends – virtual if need be. Wishing you and your families all the best in 2021.

Sherry Goldenberg,
Acting Principal
