As we near the end of your child’s 13 year journey with their K-12 education, we know this time of year for our graduating seniors is bittersweet. These young adults are transitioning from the Meadow Campus into the next chapter of their lives. These chapters may include college, career pathway(s), and/or enlisting into a military branch. On behalf of the entire Lumberjack Family, we are extremely proud of all of their accomplishments and have high hopes for their future successes. Go Jacks!
