~ Jill Sarnow, HNR School Counselor ~
It may be hard to believe, but we are in the "final count down" for the 2020/2021 school year! This year has definitely had its ups and downs, but we have worked tirelessly, overcame obsticals, and persevered in a year that was filled with questions and uncertainty at its very beginning. We should celebrate ALL that this year has taught us, not just academically but also socially and emotionally as well. I know this last stretch of school can seem to carry on forever, and current behaviors can show the unrest of excitement for warmer weather and freed-up days. BUT, I have no doubt we will finish this school year strong and excited for what lies ahead for the 2021/2022 school year:)
