Kepner Beacon Community,
“A Single Tree Cannot Make a Forest” Nigerian Proverb

This week at Kepner Beacon it was all about teamwork. Our staff stepped up and supported each other by covering classes. In our community meetings we discussed how we are a community that functions like a team and we have to wear our masks to win the game against Covid. I could not be more proud of the way that we all have each other’s back here at KBMS. Have a great, well earned weekend everyone!
