Dear Colleagues,

I hope you are well as we close out the week. It’s hard to believe that we are on the brink of our last week of classes! While this academic year proved to be yet another unpredictable one, I am so proud of our Saints community and everyone’s contributions in delivering a safe, uninterrupted learning environment for our students. We have much to be grateful for during this year of appreciation.
