Dear students, parents, and families of IES Sigtuna
The holiday season is nearly upon us! I would like to wish each and every one of you a warm and wonderful festive season with your families and loved ones.
During the holiday season, we all celebrate in different ways, but I like to think of Christmas as a time to focus on three special G’s... Giving, Gratitude and Grace.
Giving does not need to be materialistic in the form of tangible gifts. Giving of ourselves, by caring for and appreciating each other, can be extremely powerful.
Taking the time to show Gratitude to loved ones can be worth more than a gift wrapped in paper. Taking the time to tell someone why you are grateful to have them in your life can make someone feel loved and valued.
The holiday season is a good time for us to reflect on showing Grace. Grace in the form of humility when it comes to the privileged position that we are in, and an awareness of the opportunities that exist to reach out to those less fortunate than ourselves.
Stay safe, stay healthy and I look forward to seeing you in 2021!
Principal IES Sigtuna
