Hi Hyla,

It's hard to believe that this is the third week of the second month of 2024. Since February 1 we have celebrated Ground Hog Day, Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day, and the Super Bowl. We have eaten a lot of chocolate, and according to CBS - consumed approximately 8,000 calories each at Super Bowl parties. Phew - that's a lot for a short month. Although, this year, February will be one day longer. I could go on with why - but it's a bit complicated. It's officially called Leap Year. Congratulations to anyone born on February 29. Party hardy because you have to wait 4 years for another opportunity.

Be well,


Outstanding Student of the Year
