It's been a cold week at IMSA. With wind-chilled temperatures dipping below -60 degrees Fahrenheit the boys have been hunkered down in the hall since Tuesday evening. At this point, I think everyone is getting a little stir crazy and is ready to return to their routine.

1504 finally got in their long planned cross-hall holiday gift exchange with the ladies of 1506. The students gathered in 1506 to enjoy hot cocoa, snacks, gifts and time spent together. Good times were had by all.

Don't forget, we have our Super Bowl party this Sunday (2/3) and are still looking for donations of chips, dips, veggie and deli platters, wings, pizza, and drinks. If you can provide any of these items (or gift cards or funds to purchase them), it would be greatly appreciated. We want to make this party as fun as possible for our residents.

Our dinner date (which was supposed to take place on Tuesday) has been moved to Monday (2/4). I am also still looking for food donations for as well. Please let me know if you are able to provide food or supplies.

IMSA's Lunar show is performing this weekend. Please come out and support the students who have put so much time and effort into this production. It's going to be a great performance!

Parent day is this Saturday. Feel free to stop by the hall and say hi while you are on campus. I would love to see all of your faces and get a chance to catch up and answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your student this semester.

Stay warm!

Happy New Year and welcome back!

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed their holidays.

Second semester is here and I am excited to get back into the swing of things in 04C. As you all know, I have been away for quite some time. If I seem a little slow in my responses at the outset of the semester it is only because I have a lot to catch up on. Things should level out in a week or two.

I am proud of our boys for how they finished first semester and will be looking to help them build on their success.

Our major area of focus this semester will be curbing the number of Tier-1 violations accumulated by C-wing residents. Our wing was responsible for 1/3 of the overall violations in 1504 and only two of our residents went without a violation in semester 1. Helping the boys to become more responsible in how they interact with the rules and expectations set forth for them will be a top priority this semester.

1504 is planning a Super Bowl Viewing Party for Sunday Jan. 3rd and we need your help. If you are able, please consider donating snacks and beverages for the students to enjoy while they take in Super Bowl LIII. Feel free to shoot me an email if you have questions about what kind of things to donate or just want to let me know what you'll be providing.

I look forward to another great semester and am excited to share with you all the fun things we do and the wonderful achievements of our boys throughout the remainder of the year!
