Conrad Bi-Weekly Memo January 5, 2024

Principal's Message

Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fantastic break, filled with cherished moments with friends and family. Taking a break from our usual routines can be incredibly rejuvenating. The onset of a new year is a perfect opportunity to reflect on our journey, set intentional goals, and envision where we're headed.

As we step into the second semester, we encourage all students to define their goals for the year. A new semester signifies a fresh start, allowing students to either build upon their successes from the first semester or refocus for an even more prosperous second half.

Thank you for your ongoing support in making Conrad Schools of Science a vibrant and thriving school community!

Mission- Conrad Schools of Science… teaching life science and life lessons in a kind and inclusive environment, inspiring students and improving the world.

Vision- Conrad Schools of Science will empower students to achieve their goals and impact the community.
