So…this school year did not end the way any of us could have imagined. Despite that, we can still look forward to our future hopes and dreams. What are your hopes and dreams?
A Message from the ELO Team.
This is a new experience for all of us and we want you to know that you are important and we miss you. We have created some lessons and activities for you to do during this time of school closures. Just because the school building is closed, you can still learn. Learn things that most interest you, be creative, go outside, stay in touch with your friends, and be kind to those near you.
