Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The class of 2020 will forever be a class to remember as they had to learn a new reality, along with overcoming the loss of so many traditional events associated with their final months of school. I am very proud of how our Bulldogs demonstrated their resilience and have persevered, and these experiences will only make them better and more prepared for their next steps in life.
