My school is wonderful! The teachers really care about their students. I am kept informed often on my child's progress. I would recommend this school without a doubt.

Posted February 18, 2005

I would like to share a little information about the school my child attends. If you are looking to relocate in the near future, but are concerned about the well being and the education of your child. I would like to be one of the first to witness that there is no other elementary school that I would like for my child to attend. In the beginning, when my daughter turned 5, I knew it was time to make a decission of where she will enroll. I did everything that I knew to collect information about each school that was near by, and gathered information about teachers. Also, I compared different test scores, this school vs. that school and came to the conclusion that Laceys Spring, was the school for my little girl to begin her journey. I can't start to write to tell you how happy of the decission I have made. I know my special person is getting the teaching, care and the disipline she made need. Also, I have been a substitute teacher and have learned that the care that you see in person is the care that your child recieves when you leave them at school. Furthermore, as a parent, I encourage you to please be involved with your child. Make plans for their future by setting goals, helping your children accomplish their dreams. I am a firm believer that it all begins at home. Ways I have found that has helped my child, and you may find that will help your child is to: 1. Get involved, and know whats happening. 2. Set goals and have a daily routine 3. Getting organized Sincerely, Mrs. A February 18, 2005

My family has attended Laceys Spring Elementary for decades now. It has always provided us with the best education in the best environment. My son will start Kindergarten next year and I am very happy that I can count on him having the same educational benefits in which we all enjoyed. Laceys Spring Elementary has wonderful teachers as well as a learning environment that will give any child the love of learning as well as the self esteem boost they will need to have a bright and rewarding future.

My daughter is in 4th grade this year and in the past years we have been with this school I can tell you that they are dedicated to helping my child reach her personal best goal at her acedemic level. The accelerated reading program really encourages the kids to read. My son will start this year and I look forward to his enrollment with Laceys Spring Elementary. For a small community we are blessed with a good school for our kids to develope their character they need as adults. Keep up the good work. Thanks
