It has been an exciting week with Student-led conferences and the final stages of the humanities and occupations projects in full swing. Jenna and I have gained such insight from listening to the students explain to their parents their perspective, understanding, and enjoyment of the program. We are grateful for the dedication our class shows in their education.
