Virtually Connected

While our students and teachers are all over the world, we are still connected. Through our committment to excellence, our students are always connected both within and outside of the classroom. Students can be caught working on their subject work, dancing for PE, creating art projects for Earth Day, and hanging out in our virtual playground. Take a look and see some great outcomes from our remote learning program.
