Cliff’s Notes with a Holiday Greeting

Dear Bedford Public Schools Community,

I continue to be grateful for the opportunity to serve as superintendent, alongside an amazing team and supportive community. In my final update of 2023, I return to how I started off the year–communicating via the universal language of music. Many thanks to Lane School music teacher Natan Wythe, who is accompanying me yet again, and also helped to arrange this original version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas interspersed with excerpts from The Dreidel Song. (I finally learned to play Dreidel during a Hanukah class celebration in Ms. Lee’s class at Lane!). Whatever traditions you may celebrate, I wish you peace, joy and love this winter break and in 2024.

Cliff Chuang 莊 宏 毅
Superintendent, Bedford Public Schools
