Dear Parents and Students,

It has been quite the year as we transitioned back from COVID remote learning. Through it all, the one word that stands out as describing our students and staff is perseverance.  It has not been easy, but by working together, we made it. Thank you for your partnership. To our seniors, congratulations and we wish you the best in your future endeavors; remember, you are always lifelong Steelmen and Tigers. To our freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, we look forward to an even better school year next year; enjoy your summer, be safe, and recharge.
