Before we shut down the red brick building for the holidays, our staff and faculty participated in the annual Christmas Lunch, the inaugural Office Decorating Competition, and—in what may be a new tradition—a whole lot of photo booth sessions with Santa himself.

It’s been a busy and often challenging year, so there was something delightful about being able to pause in the midst of the year-end rush to eat together, sing together, and snap a few silly pictures with jolly old Saint Nick. May all of us come to know more moments of unexpected delight in the days ahead.

From our family to yours, merry Christmas!
