As the School Year Came to a Close...
The 2021-22 School Year continued with challenges, but our resilient students and staff came through with flying colors. We could not be prouder of our students who reacclimated back to in-person learning, putting up with all the safety precautions in place. They have demonstrated to us that they can deal with diversity and make the best of a very difficult period that impacted all of us. Fortunately, tools we've learned to use from Dr. Ross Greene's Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) and the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Program have helped us by teaching all valuable coping skills which were much needed these past several months.
We had one graduate this past year whose celebration was done via a drive by. This year, we had an in person graduation with some extra safety precautions. Congratulations, Michael and Justin on your graduation.
We had two graduates the prior year and sent warm congratulations to John and David. We also wish Ben the best in his new program..
Victor, Journi, and Paul are all actively engaged in school and/or jobs and doing well
Congratulations to all of our students for a fine year!
