I recently attended a celebration of life for a member of our MUSD family, Frances Paragon-Arias, and as I was leaving, someone asked me if "I enjoyed it." I replied that I learned more about Frances, and that I wished I had known her better. He reminded me that people experience different parts of what makes us who we are. Our multifaceted Milpitas community is similar.
The season of celebration in Milpitas is one that embraces our community with many cultural and faith based traditions. From September thru February we share in each other's experiences of holidays focused on renewal and relationship that incorporate the radiance of life. It is in these moments that we have the opportunity to learn more about each other.
During this winter's festivities, let's be fully in the moment with each other, and take time to tell others how they have enriched our lives. I will tell you that being a part of our Milpitas community since 1989 has positively impacted my life. I look forward to the years ahead with you as we continue to develop world class educational experiences for all MUSD learners.
Happy Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa, and a joy filled New Year✨
