Dear Rejuvenated RES Staff,

Dear Hardworking RES Staff,

What a surprise that snow was Friday afternoon!   Spring is working hard to arrive, looks like we'll have a warm spring break as the temps are supposed to hit 50 by the end of the week!  There will be no blog next Sunday since it will be spring break!  The next blog will be published Sun., April 22.

Though many of us welcome a "break," some students do not.  Please keep that in mind this week and perhaps review your class behavior expectations.  We are all tired and stressed, so remember to breathe and take a moment so you respond rather than react particularly this week.
