We have received all of your calls, emails, and messages of support and are so thankful for such an engaged community. We understand the importance of this program and how hard the students have worked to study and prepare.

We ask for your patience as we work through options during this worldwide pandemic. The impact it is having on our school’s students and teachers is unprecedented. Our hope is that altering our competitions program supports the well-being of our students and our country during this time.
