Dear Campus Community,

It’s time to rally and get excited for our Eagles Serving Eagles All Staff In-service Day on June 20!  

I’d like to see 75% of your offices in attendance, so please begin planning now to best accommodate this important staff event. We know that schedules can be busy this time of year with schools releasing for the summer and vacations about to begin, so we have condensed our time…to serve you!

If you are able to participate, please fill out the RSVP link by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14.
