Over the course of last year, my struggling student went from very negative and work avoiding to a kid that loves school and happy to work hard and reap the rewards for his efforts. It was all with support from the classroom teacher, other staff, and a personal re-calibration. It was wonderful to see.
The entire school took part in fundraisers for struggling families, the 5th grade packs food for Feed My Starving Children, the 4th graders held a used book sale for fellow student's families as a service project. Compassion, caring, and empathy are woven through every day at Churchill.
From Mrs. Harmon (principal) and Mr. O'Connell (asst principal), to the teachers and staff in the classrooms and hallways, to the many parent volunteers, Churchill has far exceeded my very high expectations. My child is involved in after school activities, loves the AT classes, and has a teacher that keeps her students engaged and invigorated every day. The community regularly blows me away with their compassion, rallying around many families struggling through very personal and devastating issues.
I am deeply grateful my family has had such a positive and enriching experience at Churchill.
Churchill is full of talented and caring teachers, who definitely go above and beyond what is expected. My daughter's teacher does so many creative, engaging activities, and she is always quick to drop an email full of praise. My son's AT teacher designs creative activities to keep him challenged. This school is tops.
Love the music and art programs. My kids come home with beautiful creative artwork and enjoy music. These programs are crucial to a great education. Each classroom should implement these into everyday learning. I dont see enough creative projects coming home only boring worksheets that the kids are just burnt out from. Where are the erupting volcano projects and shoebox displays?!
