Grassy Waters Elementary School 5

I am so impressed by the staff at this school. The principal is extremely involved. She answers my questions and concerns about kindergarten and VPK for both my children. The teachers are really good and caring, especially Mrs D, Ms Garcia, Ms Kinney, and Ms Simon. I like that they have a free breakfast program for any student. I am nurse and am excited about my kids being exposed to a biomedical laboratory at such a young age. This is a really great school. I was thinking about privatising my kids, but I changed my mind after I got a tour of the school. We are lucky to have this as a public school close to my home. I believe my 2 kids will thrive here and excel to their highest academic potential.

Thanks to Ms Garcia for always helping me with clarifying the pick and drop off for my little ones. Thanks to the principal for listening to my concerns and addressing any issues quickly and also for being kind and caring. Thanks for Ms D. for always smiling and writing in the agenda daily. Thanks for Ms Simon and Ms Kinney for working extra hard on my daughter who started off with seperation anxiety when dropping off. You staff make this school great!

The principal is great. I really like the fact that they have a medical and veterinary program and the kids get to wear scrubs if they want, but the principal is great about supporting families. Scrubs aren't mandatory and lower cost options are ok. She is always around and participates in family events with her own family. She shows that she is all about the kids.

They only send home homework for practice. Sometimes I have to help, but if we don't get it the teachers are always willing to help my child understand it.
