Good morning this is James Tager, Superintendent of the Bangor School Department. Due to icy road conditions, the Bangor School Department will have a two-hour delay for all schools on January 25, 2024. This delay will help to ensure the safety of our students and staff during the morning commute. A limerick to brighten your day There once was a school day so gray, With icy roads causing delay. For two hours we'd wait, As ice sealed our fate, In class, we’ll eventually find our way.

Hello, this is James Tager, Superintendent of the Bangor School Department, with a winter weather haiku and an important message for families. Schools hushed, doors closed, Snow's decree, a day of rest, Kids play, laughter flows. Due to the most recent National Weather Service forecast for tomorrow, Wednesday, January 10, 2024 of a mixed precipitation winter storm with strong winds that may cause power outages throughout the Greater Bangor Region, I have decided to call a snow day. All BSD student activities as well as the School Committee Meeting scheduled for Wednesday are cancelled. For the safety of everyone in the BSD community and to give families time to make plans for tomorrow, I feel that making a decision tonight is best. Be safe.

Merry Christmas! The original meaning of Christmas was to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The story of the Nativity and the events surrounding the birth of Jesus are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. Many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals, including the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and trees, symbolizing everlasting light and life.

Happy Yule and Winter Solstice! Countries all over the world have been celebrating and honoring these astronomical events for thousands of years, from building structures that line up with the solstice to holding loud festivals in their honor. Yule is celebrated in many ways. In some countries, it is a two-month celebration that starts in the middle of November, a 12-day celebration that starts on the winter solstice, or a three-day feast that starts on the night before the winter solstice. On the winter solstice, people from many pagan cultures honor the sun and the middle of winter. Modern-day pagans celebrate Yule on the day of the winter solstice. At Stonehenge in England, people celebrate by gathering before dawn after the longest night to watch the sunrise through one of the stones. Yule celebrates the sun’s rebirth by giving each other gifts, having parties, and thinking deeply about one’s faith. This is a time of fresh beginnings, rebirth, transformation, breaking bad habits, and creativity.
