|A Note From Headmaster
Our Senior class was away this week on a local Senior trip to Williams, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon. Ms. Roiger, Mr. Gonzalez, Mr. Kinum, Dr. Ustach, and Mrs. LeTrent had a wonderful time with the students, just being together. They saw at least six inches of snow! What a blessing it is to be together; so much of education involves ideas, discussions, facts, and skills; however, what makes it worthwhile is learning and sharing the short time we have with others. I am so thankful for the many parents and volunteers who served as the meal work crew and the teachers on campus, who found ways to substitute in classes, so our Seniors could cherish their remaining time at Glendale Prep. Here are a few pictures from their time together.
Have a great weekend,
