What challenges did the Class of 2022 face as they returned to in-person school full time, and how did they overcome them:
This class was able to bounce back from the pandemic with school spirit and tremendous resolve.
Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: You have been terrific ambassadors for the Metea LIFE. Through it all, we took this journey together and we all learned and grew as a result. You embraced the Better Together theme this year and made it a reality.
In particular, I want to thank you for the way you have represented our school in the classrooms, the hallways, the fields and courts of athletic competition and, most importantly, the community.
-- Principal Darrell Echols
