    A special note, to our children, we are sooooo proud of our School 16 EAGLES who are courageously logging on each day, showing up and learning in a different, yet, enriching way.  A special "thank you" to our TEACHERS and PARENTS/GUARDIANS on tackling our "NEW NORMAL" each day with a SMILE!  


    REMEMBER the African Proverb: It takes a village to raise a child......Welcome to the School 16 Village, where all things are possible when we work TOGETHER for the sake of our FUTURE LEADERS.....our CHILDREN!
