About this school

As part of the school program all students receive weekly enrichment classes in PE, Motor Skills, Library, Computer,and Music (Orff and instrumental). Upper grade students also receive Art instruction. These classes are taught by specialists in their fields and are funded by our parent organization. Our PFC, or Parent Faculty Club, also supports intervention efforts by supplying three classroom assistants and a clerical aide. Classroom teachers also receive a per-student fund for classroom supplies and special projects. Parents not only support the school financially, but volunteer regularly in classrooms and on field trips. The success of the school clearly comes from the collaboration of faculty and parents.
