As the 3rd quarter comes to a close and we hit that final 9 weeks of the school year, we are excited to say how much we have seen the students learn and grow even while we continue to operate in unprecedented times. The students have become experts in Zoom and online courses and have learned how to navigate a hybrid schedule with ease. Learning both educationally and socially has not come without complications, but our students and staff have shown true grit and have pushed through, focused forward, and have been flexible through it all. We will continue to move forward with a “Can Do” attitude as we go into our final 9 week period while continuing to focus on ways we can help students forge their own path to their Big Life!!
