Theme of the Month:  KINDNESS

Hello CPPS Phamily!
I hope all is well with you and yours. As you continue to connect remotely to coursework, remember to maintain emotional connections with your classmates, friends, and loved ones. Call, text or post. Do whatever it takes to keep these connections strong while you maintain a safe physical distance. 
As we end the month of March, we conclude our focus on "kindness". This week's quote is evidence that kind gestures do not have to impact the many to be beneficial. Sometimes a singular act of kindness can make a world of difference.
In the words of Lucius Annaeus Seneca,
"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness".
Wishing you an overflow of kindness during this challenging time.

Best regards,
Dr. Holiday-Goodman
