Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: These seniors have had a more "normal" year than the last two and we are grateful for every opportunity with them. They still faced challenges because of the last two years of uncertainty. I am proud of everything they have accomplished.

They have made us proud in everything they do!

-- Principal JoAnne Smith
