Is Starts In The Heart

The Joseph Sams School students created a video with a theme of connection and hope. The video features a message from our BOD President, Wayne Hillis, an instrumental song, individual students’ smiles, dances, and messages from their hearts.

We appreciate Ms. Caroline and the JSS staff for leading the students, showcasing their many strengths and abilities, all while allowing them to shine!
