Yard Signs for Our Outstanding Seniors

Yard Sign 2020

Congratulations to the Class of 2020! What an incredible accomplishment! We are so very proud of you! This week, we distributed yard signs for our outstanding Seniors. A heartfelt thank you to Ms. Amy Hickox, who has organized this event for weeks. Also, a huge thank you to Mr. Palacios and a team of amazing SEM PTA board members, who went the extra mile to deliver the yard signs and candy to our awesome Seniors. Without your help and support, this would not have been possible. Thank you!!! 

“Take pride in how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go. But don’t forget to enjoy the journey.” — Michael Josephson
