It has been a privilege for us to attend such a special event that highlights the craft we teach our youngsters. To have our government recognize all that we do and invite our students to the historical home that has seen so many influential and respectable figures pass through its halls, is an opportunity that we are deeply thankful for. It gives us a new found level of respect for what we do daily and dares us to raise the bar even further, when it comes to the expectations we have for our students.
Thank you for everything, and everyone that has contributed to making this possible. From the administrators that run a tight ship, to the teachers that go the extra mile to instruct, to the passion and dedication that flows from our students.
