SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Dear Lycée Community,

As we get ready to enjoy our holiday break, I want to share my gratitude to you for being such an important part of our school. The success of a school is predicated on a foundation of mutual trust and respect, as well as commitment to growth and progress. The work you demonstrate every day to allow for our ambitious progress makes us the strong organization that we are. I would like to thank you for your continued support and wish you all a safe and happy holiday. I hope you will be able to enjoy some quality time with friends and family and get ready to be back with renewed energy. We have so much to accomplish, and are excited and inspired by the progress we see every day.
