It’s the time of year when spirits are light in Maricopa Unified School District classrooms as the holidays approach.

MUSD students engaged in concerts, plays and activities of the season before the best part of this time of year: Winter Break.

Today is the final day of classes in MUSD. School resumes Jan. 4.

A look at some of the fun in the district before the long break.
