Happy Holidays

December 20, 2019

Dear Reynoldsburg City Schools Families, Students and Staff,

Winter break is upon us and the season for reflecting on accomplishments and milestones over the past year. I hope you will take this time to think about the many ways in which you have contributed to the success of our students, families, community, and your colleagues. I appreciate all that you do to make Reynoldsburg City Schools a great place for learning, growing, and working. It’s been a great start to the school year and I look forward to continuing our work in 2020.

Enjoy your families, recharge your batteries, and cherish this well-deserved break! Safe travels to those of you who may be leaving the area, whether it is across town, out of the state, or around the globe. For those of you spending your break at home, I hope that you will enjoy those closest to you and schedule some time to take in the wonderment of the Central Ohio region. I hope you take this time to celebrate your friends and family. Use this time to reflect and reengage. Celebrate your successes and consider resolutions to start the New Year with purpose. Open your hearts and minds to those who might not have the same opportunities as yourself. Have a wonderful winter break and a Happy New Year!
