Message from the Director

Hello CNUSD staff,

February is the shortest month, but is filled with the most love and of course tons of chocolate. Even in these tough times, let's choose to look at the glass have full instead of half empty and spread love like never before. Give a call to someone and let them know you are thinking about them, leave a positive note on a colleague's desk, send someone a virtual hug, or simply smile at your neighbor. Let's fill everyone's hearts with joy and happiness.

Cassandra Willis, Director
