My office will be closed starting June 21st and will re-open July 8th, so be sure to contact me asap if there is anything you need from me before I power down. I will have some other “office closed” dates over the summer, so look for those on the TEA homepage. Please give me as much lead time as possible to serve your needs. Email is always the best way to reach me, but on closed dates, I will not be reading email (per my hubby’s orders)!
TEA’s Spring Gala and 15th Annual Commencement Ceremony were both huge successes! It is such a delight serving this group of fabulous young people! Thank you to all who pitched in to make the Gala such an awesome experience, especially Mrs. Jeni Zerphy who arranged for the British car club to bring their sports cars for our teens to pose in. What incredible photos those will be! Photos will be sent to all attendees as soon as our photographer edits and sends them to me. And, what a wonderful afternoon we had celebrating the graduation of 50 TEA seniors in Gettysburg with the help of Abraham Lincoln and Mr. Tom McGinn of Anne Arundel Community College. The Class of 2013 rocks!!! Graduation photos will be uploaded to TEA’s website soon, so be on the look-out for them!
Of course, I am already planning next year’s fall events, including our TEA Times and Teen Kick-Off. And, you won’t want to miss TEA’s College and Career Conference that is set for November 16th. Families with students of all ages are invited, but you’ll especially want to attend if you have a student in 7th grade or older. Look for details over the summer!
Warmest wishes for some wonderful family fun this summer!
