Dear Wolves,

Spring is a busy time for high school students. Over the past week or so our students have competed in Atlanta for DECA Internationals, celebrated their future plans at our Destination Day, traveled to Oregon for a Track and Field invitational, and turned out in large numbers to cheer for and celebrate our Unified basketball team. They are creating lifelong memories.
