Congrats to the Class of 2019 Cornerstone Graduates! A unique and special graduation experience, our Seniors were surrounded by family, friends and staff when they received their diplomas last night. Such a joyous, lovely celebration!

05/28/2019

As our Seniors prepare for tomorrow night's ceremony, we want to thank our Cornerstone parents of the graduates for all the support they have provided throughout the year. It takes a village, and we couldn't have gotten your seniors where they are today without your continued support of our school, teachers and staff.

We hope you had a great weekend!
How did YOU celebrate Memorial Day?

A few highlights from last night's play!!!! The students did an amazing job and the casting and makeup was perfect!

Last night, our students put on the annual play for parents, family and friends. Our very own Sarah Downey, teacher at Cornerstone, wrote and directed the play. GIFTED was about acceptance of everyone and how everyone has different talents that make them special. Well done, Ms Sarah!
