Notes from Kevin

  • Lots of very happy parents at conferences! Thanks or your extra effort to make these beneficial for everyone. Please don't hesitate to invite me to attend any with extra 'sensitivity' if helpful.
  • Reminder: No BLT next week due to it being a week with conferences. So sorry. I was looking forward to covering 3 hours worth of agenda in 45 minutes.
  • See a student issue in the building that could be addressed in the daily announcements? Send it my way and we will be happy to add a blurb.
  • Thanks for making it a great day, Jackson!
