Every Voice Celebrated


Just got back from my Grandson’s “Non-Holiday” performance. I’m not kidding….the word holiday is not mentioned. What?

I feel so grateful to be here, a place that is happy and free to allow celebration for everyone, no matter what their beliefs. This season at Prep, we have three gift drives going on at the same time: under a Christmas tree is Holidays for Hillsides. Near the librarian’s desk is an overflowing box of toys for the Toys for Tots drive. In Mr. Baker’s room, the Latin Club is holding a toy drive for kids in need.
Yesterday, faculty and staff gathered with their kids to meet Santa in the Library. Later in the evening, our Winter Music Concert had something for everyone! Prep is a place of incredible tolerance . . . a place not afraid to celebrate “the holidays” and what it means to you.
 Happy Holidays
-Mrs. Ursettie
