Hello Bronco Families,
We are rounding the corner into the second half of the school year beginning next week. As the semester wraps up and assessments are being completed, it is nice to see the progress our students are making in spite of many challenges over the last couple of years. Thanks to the flexibility and dedication of our teachers, the strong support and guidance of your families, and the resilience and perseverance of our kids, good things are happening. We still have a ways to go. There continue to be social, emotional, and behavioral struggles to address, but we are on our way. We will get there together.
I am relieved to share that there are no updates to navigate this week with the pandemic. The news we are hearing is hopeful that the latest surge will be passing in the next week or so. We remain hopeful that there is a light at the end of this very long tunnel and that we are coming out the other side soon!
Have a wonderful evening!
.Hello from the Dean of Student Services.
Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to the life
we have refused
again and again

Hopefully you have had a chance to drive by the Coburg Grange to see our students' artwork on display. There were so many amazing drawings to choose from that it was decided to make collages of drawings and have local businesses put them on display! If you pop by some local businesses you might recognize some art work!
