In celebration of National Haiku Poetry Day, the Daily Digest offers the following:
Snow lies all around
Blanketed sidewalks, iced streets
Students have no school.
Dear ACPS Students and Parents:
I wish for all ACPS families a relaxing and joyful winter break, filled with memorable times with your loved ones. This is a special time of year for caring and giving, and I hope that our students will take advantage of this extended time off school to think about neighbors and community members who could use some extra support.
