What challenges did the Class of 2022 face as they returned to in-person school full time, and how did they overcome them:

The Class of 2022 re-entered a new normal as they returned to in person learning. This class were able to overcome some set backs and ultimately come through the pandemic with flying colors. They challenges they faced will only help them learn and grow in their future endeavors.

Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022:

I think the most critical thing we, as a school, and especially the class of 2022 has embraced is the journey. Nancy Salmeron stated, "Enjoy the journey and embrace the destination when you get there." I am so very proud of your leadership and commitment. No matter where you land, college, career, trades, or military -- we are so proud of you.

-- Principal Erin DeLuga
