    My son just started in K2 (Kindergarten) this fall and he has really grown to like it. he has a great teacher Mrs. Stedman who is energetic communicative and creative. We so proud of this little school and the hard work the faculty staff principle and parents are putting in. there is a great community around this school and the Principal Ms Julia Bott is an extraordinary leader. There is an active Parent Council and School Site Council a cool new (ish) outdoor classroom and more. The parents even helped raise money to bring in a choir director to start a choir for the upper grades. We are still new to the community but so far so good. Our son is happy we are happy and we plan on sending our younger children to the school as well when they are old enough.
