A Message from Principal Cooper
I can't believe that we are entering week 5 of Distance Learning. We have all learned so much in 4 short weeks. This is a challenging time for all of us, but I am so proud of the dedication, teamwork, and perseverance that you are all showing. Keep up the great work!
Our Main Office is working so hard daily to ensure that you all get the support you need. Please continue to reach out to us if you need help!
I love hearing from our amazing teachers as they describe the fun that they are leading in their online class sessions. Our teachers are working so hard! Thank you for making sure your student is present for these important moments of learning.
We will get through this together, I promise!
