Gratitude


We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our teachers, support staff , parents, guardians and caregivers for all of their hard work and dedication to our students and their achievement this year. We would also like to thank our students for their resiliency and hard work adapting to new ways of learning. Everyone's efforts and continued engagement are commendable. We understand how difficult things may be, and we want you to know that we are here to support you. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.


We hope everyone has a restful Thanksgiving break and is able to take the time to reflect on things you are grateful for during this time. Please stay safe and remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing especially as the community spread of the virus continues.
