What was new for the class of 2020: Addition of the Ward Athletic Center (WAC) for athletic contests.

Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: This class has a special place in my heart because I have known them since the sixth grade when my triplet boys started at Timothy. I have seen many of them grow and mature over the last six years and I can truly say that I love these students! They have been amazing leaders and models for the rest of the school and our culture is better because of them. I am going to miss them next year.

-- Principal Brad Mitchell
