Congratulations to the Best of the Best 2020 Winners!

The Minarets community gathered around their screens on Monday, May 18, to watch the annual Best of the Best ceremony that was streamed live through the Minarets Facebook page.


To create an engaging event, Head of Charter Patrick Wilson produced the video ahead of time which included the Minarets teachers and staff introducing each award and the nominees. He also served as the host where he added in some humor and silliness regarding the ongoing quarantine and stay at home order.


While the ceremony was significantly shorter than the typical in-person event, it still gave students, staff, parents, families, and community members the opportunity to gather virtually and celebrate student success throughout the year.
