    My daughter started the third grade at this school we moved here from Florida. The teachers are all very welcoming. My daughter loves her school and teacher. What I like most about the school is that it's not so big office staff remembered my name after my first visit. That made me feel great! The principal is Mrs. Kohler very nice person always involved with school project. You can even find her helping the crossing guard and lunch lady.
