Community Circle on 4.21

There have been tragedies and injustices in our nation, it's more apparent than ever and it can't go unnoticed. We understand recent events, including the Derek Chauvin trial, impacted our HAWKS differently. We want to ensure that all HAWKS always have a safe space here at school.
