Our students have worked hard all year and are finally at the last week of school. May 8th will mark the last day of instruction for the 2019-2020 school year, although some students completing projects will still continue past that date. In this weekly series, we are sharing work the students are completing in their virtual classrooms through Carlisle School’s Distance Learning program in action.
