If you have not had a chance to do so, please read President Crawford’s response to the Administration’s announcement related to DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival). I strongly reaffirm his statement that we are all committed to the development, growth, and success of all of our students, without regard to national origin, race, ethnicity, or any other characteristic that makes them unique. Thank you for your efforts in supporting all of our students.

Here is this week’s Weekly Three:
