Monday, September 2, No School – Labor Day holiday
The school will be closed on Monday, September 2 and no classes will be held. On Monday the United States celebrates Labor Day. It is time for barbecues! The holiday is meant to celebrate American workers and their economic and social contributions. In current times, the holiday is a signal that summer vacations are over, that it is a time to go back to school, and to get ready for the fall holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the religious holidays in December).

Deal of the Day – Paws for Coffee
Sandwiches at Paws for Coffee on the 2nd floor of Building 10 are discounted during Fridays only.
