Christmas Message from Mr. Semler

Dear Parents,

Merry Christmas! Christmas is an important holiday for Christians all over the world who remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. During the Christmas season, people enjoy giving gifts to friends and family. It is a time to be together and build stronger relationships. It’s a wonderful time of year!

There is a quote about Christmas that I like that captures an important truth about Christmas It goes like this, “Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly Merry Christmas.” As you think about how to spend Christmas with your family this month please remember to give your loved ones the gifts of time and love.

Another interesting thing about Christmas is that as a time when Christians wish peace on earth to all people. Each of us can make a positive difference in this world, and I encourage all of us to think of small ways that we can bring peace to others. One way that we can bring peace to others is to love others. Bob Hope once said, “My idea of Christmas whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others.” What a great message for all of us this Christmas season!

May God bless you and your family this Christmas season. Wishing you and your family a safe and joyful holiday. On behalf of the elementary school faculty and staff, please have a Merry, Merry Christmas!
