Winter Break is here! There are many holiday traditions celebrated around the world and December has offered us the great opportunity to teach our students about our multicultural world. Our teachers have enjoyed having parents and children share their holiday traditions throughout December and we have learned a lot from the many different cultural traditions that make up our one school community. Some of the holidays celebrated in December include the Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Mexican); St. Lucia Day (Swedish); Hanukkah (Jewish); Christmas Day (Christian); Boxing Day (Australian, Canadian, English, Irish); Kwanzaa (African American); Omisoka (Japanese) and Pancha Ganapati (Hindu). What all traditions have in common is they make us happy, they keep connections strong in our family and in our community! Traditions are important and cherished by all! Whatever holiday your family celebrates in December, everyone at Fox Hill School wishes you a very happy one! We also wish you a Happy New Year and we hope 2017 brings peace and joy to you. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!
