To the LARCP students:

 

Fall Break is almost here! We've had an engaging semester with a lot of opportunities and special events. Thank you for your enthusiastic participation in and support of Xtreme LA, the MRCP accreditation visit, the LA 50th celebration and Landscapades and all of the SPA/SCASLA/class activities. During the break I'll be giving thanks for each of you and the skills and abilities you bring to our disciplines--you are amazing!

 

Please stay safe over the break. Remove items you care about from your workspaces; double check that you have locked every door and window; and, wherever you are over the break, take care.

 

We will celebrate your hard work this semester with special wellness events on December 8-10. Watch for details!

 

With thanks - Stephanie
