What were the most significant challenges faced by the Class of 2021 and how did they overcome them?

Missing out on many of the yearly traditions such as Homecoming, Spring Fling and assemblies. They overcame this by keeping a positive attitude and looking forward to their futures knowing that this was a temporary circumstance that was beyond their control. They handled this year with dignity and integrity.

Principal's Reflection on the Class of 2021:

The Class of 2021 is like no other. They have faced greater adversity and challenges than any other group of graduates before them. They were witness to the pandemic and the complete change in how they were educated. The word resilient is often used to describe this class, but the term driven might better describe these students as they overcame all obstacles and still found success. Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

-- Principal Daniel Klett
