Our school year finished today! Although a third of the year took place online, what a testament it is to our school that our teachers, students, and families were able to adapt to the changing circumstances of the past few months to continue instruction. Spaces still available in some grades for the upcoming school year - any interested parents should contact the school!

And that’s a wrap! God bless all our school families and keep them safe this summer!! #relaxrechargerejoice #yourgraceisenoughformeLord
