What was new in 2021-22:
We transitioned to an alternating block schedule.
What challenges did the Class of 2022 face as they returned to in-person school full time, and how did they overcome them:
Returning to school full time, with a new bell schedule took a while to get used to, but the students responded by relearning how to do school -- interacting with peers and teachers is different at school compared to their bedroom. They were able to attend sporting events and recall what it is like to support your team. Classes and clubs were able to plan large events like The Rams Games, Veterans Day, and a talent show. They were able to use teamwork skills and coordinate many disparate parts to accomplish events that made our community proud.
Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022:
The Class of 2022 gelled. Simply, they performed at a high rate academically, socially, and in athletics. They are resilient. They transitioned through many styles of teaching and class schedules and were able to make the community proud. They never lost their identity, and have encouraged everyone in the school to rise and face their challenges with grace and humility.
