It is with a saddened heart that we learned of the passing of our dear educator, mentor and friend Amber Pellegren on 6/5/24. She brightened our campus for many years and enriched the lives of so many students, teachers, staff, and clients. Her presence at our school will be greatly missed but never forgotten.



Thank You for helping my dreams come true!
