We love this school! Our son loves going to school every day, and so do all his friends. The teachers are energetic and engaging, and they involve parents in the learning process. A weekly newsletter is sent home from the principal, and an email is sent home each week from the teacher as well, detailing the week's homework, projects and any special activities or information that needs to be shared. Children have nightly homework, and are also expected to read for 20 minutes (which is a GREAT habit to start at this age). Parents are involved in every aspect of the school - homework, planning fun events (father-daughter dance, mother-son bowling, fall festival, etc), PTA, volunteering in classrooms. My son had a non life threatening medical emergency at school and they called me instantly, beginning with, "Your son is okay, but...." which was much appreciated. No one likes to see their child's school on call display! I appreciate that they handled it calmly, professionally, and immediately. It is nice to know that he is in great hands. We're so pleased with Tesoro. The teachers are wonderful & caring, and they make learning fun!
