The sounds of the holiday season echo as our students perform vocal, band and orchestral concerts throughout the Pasadena ISD community. I must admit that it warms my heart to see and hear our students sing or play Christmas carols and other holiday songs. They are incredibly talented and enthusiastic. I hope you’ve had a chance to hear them at some point this month.
Christmas holds special meaning and memories for my family and me. It is a time of faith, family, friends and fellowship. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or simply enjoy a holiday from work, may it be as special for you as it is for us.
I invite you to listen in to conversations I recently had with students from Laura Bush Elementary School as they shared some of their thoughts about the holidays.
From the Pasadena ISD family, we wish you and your family hope, peace and joy.
Superintendent’s Note: This message was intended to go out as last week’s blog. Given the tragedy unfolding in Connecticut, we delayed sending our Christmas message. We cannot help but feel the sadness endured in Connecticut. It is a sadness that affects us all. However, evil must not rule the day. At this time of year, we celebrate a season grounded in hope, peace and inner joy. May those gifts of goodness reign in our world today and every day. K.L.
