This Sunday is our Parents Meeting. We may have need to take a rain check.....but we watch and see.
Most important...be safe.

My Versan chickadees are on their dorms, we have Jason Sherman moving in at Cooper Union, my darling St. Andrew's minion at Agnes Scott in Georgia. The stresses of moving in on campus, the outfitting of dorm rooms, but most important. They are ambassadors and they have their Jamaican flags flying high. So proud. Those farewell packets came in handy and they are rarin' to go!!!
Do well, my chickadees. Do not mess up those GPA's. I am warning you! See you all at Christmas. Control those roommates, do not have the room-mates controlling you.
