Poly Parent News: May 2021
This Month's Newsletter
Dear Parents and Supporters,
We're halfway through spring quarter and are gearing up to celebrate the class of 2021 this June!
As soon-to-be graduates finish their time at Cal Poly, we trust that they will stay connected and continue to hone the Learn by Doing attitude that has been instilled in them over the years. We are proud of the tenacity and resiliency of our students, this year especially. If your Mustang is graduating and you are interested in receiving ceremony-related updates and information, be sure to sign up for commencement emails.
This will be our last Poly Parent Newsletter for the academic year, however, our team will continue to share essential information and campus updates to all parents and supporters as they come in. Over the summer, our team looks forward to connecting with incoming students and supporters during SLO Days, and we appreciate all the seasoned Cal Poly parents and supporters who serve as resources for this enthusiastic incoming class. Your feedback, insights and questions are always welcome! We encourage you to reach out to us anytime at email@example.com with ideas on how we can make the university more welcoming and accessible to everyone.
Stay in touch over the summer and enjoy this month’s edition of Poly Parent News.
