Heartfelt Thank You!
On behalf of the SA Community, we would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported our teaching and learning during the 2015-2016 school year.  It is true that many hands make light work and we are grateful to those who could lend a hand!  This video includes some of our partners who enriched our studies this year.  We hope you all have a restful summer vacation filled with adventures!
