Dear Nevada R-V Patron,

Here we are again - in the midst of the holiday season. It's hard to believe that another semester has passed. Our hope is that, over the past 18 weeks, we have made a positive difference in your family by working together to meet the needs of your child. To quote Christa McAuliffe, former teacher and astronaut, we truly believe that, as educators, we "touch the future." None of us in the Nevada R-V School District take for granted the significance of what we do. We understand how precious every life is in our school.

This is such a great time of year, and a busy time as well. I hope that you can slow down and take time to enjoy the season with family and friends. In our family, we are looking forward to celebrating our first Christmas with our new son, Samuel Alan. His sisters, Isabelle and Lula, are doing everything they can to make sure Sam's first Christmas is memorable - as memorable as it can be for a 10-week-old!

Our family feels truly blessed to be a part of such a great community and school district. Merry Christmas to you and yours and best wishes for a wonderful new year!
