Fifth Grade Promotion!

What an unusual year! We wish our fifth graders the best of luck in their future endeavors. MANY thanks to Justin Rowe for his incredible skill in putting together this promotion video, which was watched live through ZOOM with the fifth grade students and their teachers, counselor, Leti, and me. I hope you get a chance to see it!

All the best
