Theme of the Month:  "United We Are...."
Greetings CPPS Phamily!,

I hope that you had a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. We have come to Week 4 of the fall 2020 semester. By now, you should have had an opportunity to interact with your faculty advisor, course instructors and at least a few fellow students. If you have not done so, I strongly encourage you to do so this week.
In keeping with our September theme of the many benefits of “Unity”, our focus this week is “United We Are Strong. Undoubtedly, there is strength in a unified purpose. Working together towards the goal of a successful semester provides individual and collective benefit. The following quotes attest to the power of standing united.
 
“Unity is strength, division is weakness. (Swahili Proverb)
 
“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. (J.K. Rowling)
 
Remember, the strength of our college depends on each of us doing our part. “United We Are Strong”!
 
Rocket Regards,
Dr. Holiday-Goodman
