December is an exciting and unique month. Many people celebrate holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. It is a time for celebration, reflection, and spending quality time with family and friends. On the 21st day of this month we say goodbye to fall and welcome winter as this is the day of Winter Solstice.
Decembers of past: New Jersey was admitted to the Union on December 18, 1787, the United States Bill of Rights went into effect on December 15, 1791, and on December 21, 1620, Mayflower Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts.
December present: our Winter Concert is Wednesday, December 17th at 7:30 PM. The National Honor Society Coat Drive and the MAD Infant/Toddler Toy Drive will conclude on December 10th, and school will be closed for Winter Recess from December 24th to January 2nd. Many of our students work hard as members of clubs or as individuals to give of their time to ensure that the holidays are enjoyed, and I extend our sincere gratitude to our students and faculty.
As our winter recess approaches, I would like to remind everyone that we have had an extremely productive start to our school year. This was only made possible by the sincere commitment of our students and staff to the teaching and learning process. Coupled with our athletics and activities, we have created an atmosphere of excellence at Manchester Regional High School. As I have said on numerous occasions, striving for excellence is our goal. Student, staff, parents, and community members, I thank you for your commitment.
As you enjoy the recess, I bid you the best of health and happiness. I wish everyone a happy holiday season and a superb New Year.
