Community Holidays: Upcoming Celebrations

As the ASMS community is gearing up for a well-deserved holiday vacation, we would like to share some of the holidays and traditions that will be celebrated by our families during our two-week break. The following contributions about Winter Solstice (December 21), Christmas (December 25), and Media Noche (December 31) are written by Maureen Mines, one of our ASMS teachers, Shannon Clark, one of our ASMS parents, and Dominik Davis, one of our ASMS students. ASMS community members are encouraged to share about holidays they observe for future posts by completing this Google Form. Throughout the year, both here and in school assemblies, we will continue to share more about our community through your voices. Thanks to our contributors, and we look forward to your upcoming stories. Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season!
