2020-2021 Distance Learning PLUS 

We know that this school year will be unlike any other and although there are many challenges in front of us, we CHOOSE to see  the opportunities. There will be opportunities to be creative in the ways teachers connect with students. There will be new opportunities to meet students at their growing edges with virtual tools. There will be opportunities to build resilience and awareness in our students that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
