    Dr. Catchings and his complete staff are wonderful people. Both of my children are always happy to go to school because they never know what kind of excitement is in store for them. Dr. Catchings finds ways to keep the kids interested in reading wether its letting them dye his hair green or dressing up in corny costumes when they meet certain goals. It has truly been my pleasure working with him and the staff.

    We are happy with SRE. Mr. Catchings the principal has brought the school to higher level. He expects superior quality out of students as well as teachers. I like the fact that more of our teachers at SRE are getting their National Board Certification. That is a definite sign of excellence. My child loves going to school.
