Word of the Week:  Preparation

Hello CPPS students!  

I hope that you are all on your way to a successful spring semester. Usually, success is not a random occurrence. Rather, the key to success is “preparation”!  

By now, you should have had the opportunity to meet your professors and review your course syllabi. Take the time this week to place test dates and important events in your planner. Be sure to block off ample time every week for study, rest, and fun!

 Do you want to win this semester? Ponder this “Notable Quotable”:

“To be prepared is half the victory” (Miguel de Cervantes)

So remember, success is intentional. Prepare for it!  Wishing you the best this semester!

Dr. HG
