Posted March 27, 2009

We loved Eagle Creek Elementary. My daughter went there for 1st grade and part of the year for 2nd grade. Her teachers were kind, patient and caring. When she needed a little extra help with math and reading the teachers were proactive in getting her the help she needed. In fact my daughter recieved the help before I even knew about it! We ended up moving out of state but Mrs Lahl is a very kind teacher and we miss her a lot. She even continued to email my daughter after we moved!
