No doubt about it: the 2020-2021 school year has been challenging. Adjusting to school during a pandemic with masks, social distancing, quarantine, and periods of at-home learning has been hard. But our amazing staff, students, and families have met these challenges with creativity and perseverance! Just as there have been rough spots, there have also been amazing opportunities for growth, connection, and innovation.
"We want to hear what's been successful this year," says Lori Hodges, Chair of the Board of Trustees. "We can learn from it and keep the best parts of our experience as we move forward into the 2021-2022 school year."
