Posted August 10, 2003

My daughter just finished third grade. She loved going to school everyday. The principal was great. He made everyday fun for all the kids. He knew everyone of their names and made sure they knew how special each one of them were. He had special treats for different achievements. His teachers loved him also. But he has been moved to the Middle School this year. I hope they have as much fun as Elementary did. The staff at Elementary are great. The care very much for the students. This past year the third grade passed the Reading Taks by 99%. They were on all the local tv stations. This is a great school.
