“Be proud of how you’ve been handling these past months. The silent battles you fought, the moments you had to humble yourself and wiped your own tears, and pat yourself on the back. Celebrate your strength.”


Thanks for being our partner in a very challenging 2020. Wishing you a wonderful holiday break.

Linda O’Bryan and John McEwing, LDMS Principals
