Celebrating the beginning of the new year is a tradition that has been celebrated throughout the world for hundreds of years. The new year is celebrated with parties, special foods, making resolutions and even fireworks in some locations. To find out more details about the history of this holiday, visit the History Channel’s website.
Whatever your traditions happen to be, I hope that your New Year has arrived in style! I am looking forward to the second half of the school year at Georgetown. These upcoming 5 + months are incredibly important and productive days in the school year–and a time that we typically see the most gains in learning across all grades.
Have a wonderful first weekend of 2011.
