Dear Valley Stream Central High School District Staff,
As we approach Thanksgiving, I would like to share with you that our school community has much to be thankful for. Our students are excelling not only in the classroom but also in the countless other opportunities our schools offer. We’ve had a successful fall athletics season, and our winter sports and recreational programs are well underway. Our performing arts programs have produced outstanding theatrical productions, and our music programs are busy preparing for our much-anticipated winter concerts. All of this is made possible through the time and effort you all put into making our school community vibrant and successful. Your dedication and passion for our students continue to inspire me every day. For all of this and more, I am thankful that each and every one of you has chosen to be part of our Valley Stream Central High School District family.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on everything that we’re grateful for, and at its heart, the most important part of the holiday is always about the people. Amidst the busy schedule and the relentless pace of the academic year, Thanksgiving offers everyone the chance to pause and take a step back from the daily routines, immersing ourselves in the warmth of friend and family gatherings. It’s a chance to rest, recalibrate, rejuvenate, and create lasting memories with those closest to us.
Whatever your Thanksgiving plans or traditions, I encourage you to take some time to relax and take stock of the blessings in your life.
Please enjoy this time off, and I look forward to seeing you all back on Monday.
Dr. Wayne Loper
Superintendent of Schools
