As we enter the final stretch of a particularly challenging school year, there is much to celebrate. Collectively, we’ve overcome challenges and have identified many opportunities for growth to support learning. Students have endured so much this past year. Their resiliency and the dedication of staff and families has been extraordinary. What could be perceived as learning loss this year, has been an incredible opportunity for renewal. There is so much to be thankful for and to celebrate.

This time of year, but especially now, I am thankful for the resiliency and determination of our seniors. The Class of 2021 deserves a special spotlight for all they have endured. This year has been like no other, and their hard work towards earning a high school diploma has been exceptional. As we can all attest, school is not easy during a pandemic. Our staff have embraced creative teaching methods and students have adjusted all year long to new ways of learning.

Graduation season is the culmination of everyone’s collective support and work towards student success. Student achievement is ours to share. Together, we have given students the tools they need to be successful for life beyond high school. As parents, neighbors, and educators, I invite you to join with me in celebrating the efforts of this remarkable class. Their success is our success.

In service and support,

Dr. John Polm
