I realize that for many of you today and tomorrow will be a total scrabble of hot cocoa and candy canes, toy drive collections, winter assemblies and that is only what is happening at school.
I hope you can take sometime during your winter break to do some R and R - reflecting and re-energizing for the second half of the year. To help with that R and R is a scheduled mini-break - yes, the WACA Convention of 2017 - Gone Fishing for Great Ideas in Vancouver, Washington! If you haven't had time to sign-up on-line at wacaonline.org put it at the top of your list for January. The convention will be March 15, 16, and 17, 2017.
Remember in the flurry of the season to hug someone you love, share a smile, and give words of encouragement. These are the free gifts that make the world a better place.
Enjoy every minute of the season!
