Word of the Week:  TOGETHER

Hello CPPS phamily!

As we wind down the month of February, I hope you have had time to reflect on our theme of working “together”. Every person within our college plays a unique and valuable role in our success. Excessive competition within our ranks can be counterproductive, leading to feelings of envy, exclusion and isolation. But when we work together, we all improve. Consider the wise words of Helen Keller.
 
“Alone, we can do so little;
Together we can do so much.”
 
Let’s work together to make CPPS the best it can be. Wishing you a wonderful week!
 
Dr. Holiday-Goodman
