Brent Bulletin 28

Hello, Brent families,

My sincere wishes go out to everyone for a joyous Panagbenga celebration. I hope you all enjoyed the surprise three-day weekend.

As we come together, let us take a moment to acknowledge that the Baguio Flower Festival was canceled for two consecutive years as a result of the pandemic and lockdown, and there were no parades in 2022. It is important to appreciate the fact that we can finally gather again after nearly three years of navigating through the challenges of the pandemic and lockdown. This is an ideal time to reflect on the invaluable lessons that a post-pandemic world has taught us, including the importance of kindness, human connection, continuous learning, gratitude, resilience, mindfulness, family, and community.
