Have a Good Summer!

We've all faced a lot of challenges during these past three months. Thank you to each and every one of you for your hard work and commitment to our students. As summer approaches, please remember to take some time to rest, relax and recharge. Stay well and we will see you soon. (And yes . . . that's my puppy Annie standing on my desk at home. She's that coworker who just can't seem to learn the concept of "social distancing.")
