Students and Parents,
We are excited that the day is almost here!! We have 285 graduates, campus wide. Congratulations to our graduates!
In order to allow for a smooth transition we ask that once on campus you comply with the requests of teachers, security and officers. This might not have been the graduation we had anticipated for our children…but we hope it will be EVEN BETTER.
Decorate your cars, honk your horns, and CELEBRATE your kids!
