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

I hope that Week 5 of the semester finds you well. Our September theme is United We Are.... Over the last few weeks, we have learned about unity as safety, strength, and diversity. This week our focus is “United We are Victorious”.  Ample evidence exists that being united in purpose brings us closer to our goals. Consider these insightful quotes.

Unity and victory are synonymous. (Samora Machel)

Where there is unity there is always victory. (Publius Syrus)

Wishing you a victorious week!
Rocket Regards,
Dr. Holiday-Goodman
