    I have 2 daughters in school one in th 1st grade and one in the 3rd grade. They are very good teachers. I think they are down to earth and really get involved in their childrens work. My children love going to school and can't wait to tell me what they have learned that day and show me what they can do . Both want to be teachers when they grow up and they play school everyday after school.

    I have a daughter in the 1st grade. She is doing great the teachers are great. The kids are doing things I didn't due till the 4th grade. There have been a lot of negative things said about this school but I think it is great.

    I am very thankful for Bolivar Elementary. I have a son in the fifth grade. The teachers are wonderful and they do care about our children education. The students are learning much more things at a higher level. They are getting prepared for harder things to come. My daughter will be starting kindergarten next year. I am very excited for her.
