 WEEKLY NEWS

Hello Trailblazer Families. 

I'm truly amazed at how our teachers are engaging students while teaching through this virtual platform in distance learning. Although we're meeting through zoom, the connections students and teachers are building is heart warming. Whether you've chosen Champions Academy or In-person Instruction for your child, we know that our students are going to continue to grow these connections and build new connections throughout this year. 

We're thankful for our PTC that has created this fun Jack O Lantern Contest. I look forward to seeing all of the Jack-o-Lanterns!  


This update was shared from the District via email today.
