Class of 2022

October Newsletter

Greetings, Class of 2022 Students, Parents, & Guardians,

It's been a great few months of school so far. Homecoming has come and gone and the class spirit was the highest I have ever seen it. Our kids are so happy to have the FUN activities back! While we lost our football game, it was a great game all around. I continue to be proud of this class and how they step up to be role models for the underclassmen. I hope everyone enjoyed the pep rally and dance outside. I love that we seem to be creating our own new traditions and not really looking backwards. Please enjoy this month's Class of 2022 Newsletter!
