Summer vacations are a happy time for our students and school personnel. Use it for rest, play, worthwhile recreation, and save a portion of the experience for its educational value. We urge each of you to do worthwhile reading, travel to interesting places, use opportunities for useful and productive work, find instructive and cultural programs on TV and podcasts or radio programs, take advantage of camps, remembering that each of these activities will broaden and enrich our lives. Here are some ideas for the summer! When the summer months are over, we hope to have all of you back healthy and safe.
