Hello High School Students: We know this year is turning out quite a bit different than what you imagined in the fall. We hope you are taking care of yourselves, staying active, and also using this time to learn about subjects that might not have been in your traditional coursework. High school teachers throughout the county are contributing ELO lessons on some of their favorite topics that we hope you are finding interesting and challenging to complete. You are experiencing a significant time period in history, and becoming more resilient because of it. We are thankful that we can be part of this journey with you.
