Principal's reflections on the Class of 2021:

This year has been one we will all remember. As the principal at Addison Trail, the one memory I will take away from this school year is the resiliency of our students.

They were put in a less than ideal learning environment and did a masterful job of taking advantage of all that was offered to them. From remote learning to in-person hybrid learning to modified clubs, events and athletics, the students did awesome. The class of 2021 is incredible and will always have a special place in my heart.

-- Principal Michael Bolden
