MAHS sends out Christmas cheer

MEYERSDALE - The days before Christmas look a bit different this year as students are “enjoying” virtual learning. The staff and faculty in the Meyersdale Area High School, recently completed a special Christmas project.


 Following the motto of the United States Postal Service, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds, nor pandemic” could stop them from sending holiday greetings to every high school student. 


Organized by Cassie Arnold, MAHS Guidance Counselor, a hand-written Christmas card was sent out to every student in the days prior to the holiday break.


“We wanted to do something to let our students know that we miss them, and support them in these difficult times,” she explained. 


Every faculty and staff member was given a list of students in grades nine through 12, a total of 284 students,  and sent them a personalized message. Arnold said the staff greatly enjoyed this activity, 


“We really felt it was important to connect with the students and let them know that we are truly all in this together,” she added. “We miss seeing them in school and wish them all the happiness of the holidays.”
