-Coalition for Career Development
This year we had over 500 students earn various honors and awards in our building! Although this is an incredible accomplishment for our students, it does not allow us to get a chance to celebrate in person. Due to the high number of students that would participate, we would not be able to social distance appropriately. For this reason, our honors recognition will be done virtually this year, similar to what was done last year. Parents of students who receive awards will be sent an email with information on how to view the virtual recognition presentation. In addition, students will notified of how and when to pick up their awards. We apologize that we cannot have this ceremony in person, but we are very excited about the incredible accomplishments of so many students.
Thank you for understanding and please contact our Assistant Principal, Brian Stevens, if you have any questions.
