@Brandon ODell said it well! Keep ahead of the rush and stay well stocked. All I would is... take a breath. Keep your head on and take a beat every once in a while. A quick collection of your thoughts/tickets/plates is well worth a second or two of your time. Keep at it!

On 12.20-21, our Culinary 10, 11 & 12th grade students were joined by school staff, business partners, graduates, family and friends to bake cookies for every police officer in the state of Delaware. At 8am, the 10,000+ cookies were dispatched throughout the state as a 'thank you' for keeping our community safe.
