The Dean's Message

“Below are some examples of how students and staff in our school continue to be change-makers. From book launches to awards, there remains much to celebrate as we look back on the fall term and all that was accomplished, despite the challenges we faced. I hope you enjoy learning more about the school and consider sharing your own successes in our next Newsletter, here.”
