CLASS THEME: "I'M STILL STANDING" BY ELTON JOHN

Love Letter From Your Administration

Words cannot express the deep admiration and respect we feel for this remarkable Class of '21! Never in a million years could we imagine having a group of students face the reality of a senior year completely opposite from the one we had all envisioned for them. None of us can truly understand and feel what they have been and are experiencing, but we can all stand back and learn from them. For a Class that is deserving of so much more, this group of teenagers is absent of an attitude of entitlement. How refreshing! We have been impressed at the grace and determination they have shown. Time and time again, as dates have moved, restrictions have lessened and then tightened again, these students have remained committed to forging their path and leaving a legacy behind. We have seen amazing leadership skills develop as they've led clubs, found alternate methods to serve, make an impact through CSI projects, change the life of a freshman through Link Crew, demonstrate commitment and dedication to their sports and arts, and strive for academic excellence. Thank you, Class of '21 for the lesson we've learned from YOU - that no matter what obstacles life throws in our path, at the end of the day, we want to be able to say, "We're Still Standing, Too!"
