STAFF CONNECT

Peer Washington's Staff Newsletter

Welcome to November! This is the first of our monthly internal newsletters designed to keep the staff connected professionally and personally. Expect to see important dates, personal triumphs, and state-wide updates for us to get excited about. Photoshoot bloopers, a secret gift exchange, and games of Among Us are just the beginnings for this month and beyond.

Tune of the Month

Forty-three years after it was released, "Dreams" has made it atop music charts again due to a Tik Tok user named Dogface208 making a viral lipsync. A whole new generation discovering and falling in love with Fleetwood Mac proves just how timeless and talented the band is.
