Posted November 19, 2007

the first grade teachers have been a blessing my son was diagnosed with adhd last year and they have help- every way possible thank you from the bottom of my heart
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 28, 2006

I believe that if the principal would take more time to effectively communicate with both the teachers and parents, and send out more information to parents, such as holiday schedules, and important information, then things would go much smoother. Both of my children started out this school year without a teacher and one had to go without a teacher again just recently. Some things are out of the principal's control, but effective communication is not. As a parent, I would be much happier if I was better informed.

My child was in the Kindergarten last year, and I was very pleased with his improvement. He had one of the best teachers in the world. Special thanks goes out to Mrs. Robin.
