Happy Black History Month! This is a special time to celebrate the contributions of African-Americans in the story of America. Carter E. Woodson, was the first to dedicate and celebrate the historic contributions of Black people that led to the establishment of Black History Month. He felt the importance to have a theme each year to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis. This year's theme for learning and understanding is Black Resistance. We pay tribute to those who have faced and overcome adversity, and recognize the foundational contributions made by Black culture to our society. We hope that Black History Month serves as a powerful reminder that Black history is American history, and that we share a collective responsibility in understanding our history in its entirety. We encourage you to explore the many engaging and interactive resources that exist to learn more about Black history, including those found at blackhistorymonth.gov, loc.gov, and your nearby museums.

Happy New Year 2023
Kwanzaa is a week-long holiday held annually from December 26 to January 1. It celebrates family, culture, community, and the harvest. Kwanzaa focuses on seven essential principles, known as the Nguzo Saba, which are each represented by one day of the seven-day celebration. These principles are unity (umoja), self-determination (kujichagulia), collective work and responsibility (ujima), cooperative economics (ujamaa), purpose (nia), creativity (kuumba), and faith (imani). Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, and families who celebrate Kwanzaa often celebrate it in addition to other holidays in this season. We wish you a Joyous Kwanzaa.

Christmas, is both a religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. People around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. D91 wishes you a Merry Christmas!

Holiday Hours
For many, the holidays are full of joy and wonder but, for others, the holidays and the cold winter days that follow can be the hardest. If you know someone who is struggling, or just want to promote general awareness, consider sharing information on 988 - the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, as well as Safe2Help Illinois (https://www.safe2helpil.com) When individuals contact 988, "they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary." Safe2Help Illinois "offers students a safe, confidential way in which to share information that might help prevent suicides, bullying, school violence or other threats to school safety. This program is not intended to suspend, expel, or punish students. Rather, the goal is to get students to 'Seek Help Before Harm.'”
