Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

This time of year always offers one pure gift – the gift of modeling conversations for our children. Each year at this festive time, the faculty and staff take the opportunity to remind ourselves that, although role-modeling is a year-round responsibility, the holidays can be rich learning opportunities for students of all ages. Whether at home or in school, children are always learning from us.

Children listen to adults celebrate through cheerful times and work through conflicts, both of which will always exist. Although students’ in-school celebrations and conflicts might be different than their at-home celebrations and conflicts, families have opportunities to remind children of approaches to conversations and problem-solving that are age-appropriate and that could be applied in both settings. Our principals, faculty, staff, and I are always available to support your at-home conversations and extend our work from school to home.

As children are excited about their holiday gifts, please help us by ensuring that toys stay at home. Although common sense for adults, children will need reminders that items such as trading cards, toy weapons, and technology devices should not be brought to school. We know that children will want to share certain toys; however, please consult with the teacher(s) before sending anything into school. Thank you for your continued partnership. Our students need us all!

Here is the December edition of our 
District Newsletter.

Wishing you and your family a joyous December break! We look forward to seeing our students back in school on Tuesday, 2 January 2024.

Here’s to a cheerful and healthy 2024 ahead,

Danielle M. Da Giau, Ed.D. 
Superintendent of Schools
Old Tappan Public School District
