Special Celebration Edition
During this very unusual and uncertain time, let’s take a moment to celebrate something most of us have taken for granted our entire lives... our public schools and professional educators! They have always been there for us with their doors and arms wide open, and even amidst this great challenge we are all facing they find a way to continue serving their communities. Following are just a few highlights among their innumerable academic achievements this school year.
