Beauty During The Storm


During these uncertain times there is still beauty in the world. This is "Ruby Red" - an oncidium sharry baby ruby red orchid grown by our Visual Arts Director Susan Knippenberg. It's an inspiration to keep growing and thriving while we get thru this difficult period.

Great PLC from the Dynamic Magnet Team. They put students FIRST!
