Fall Break is this Thursday and Friday, October 10th and 11th. We are 8 weeks into the semester, and our students are taking midterms this week. How can that be? Wasn’t Family Weekend just last week? Quick note: If your student is coming home for Fall Break, don’t plan too much for them without talking to them first. They have been working hard for 8 weeks, not getting as much sleep as they probably need and may just want to hang out at home, eat their favorite food you cooked for them, and just visit with family.
I wanted to share some important upcoming dates with you to share with your student.
