    Love the open door feel and encouragement for family involvement. Principal Agostine is WONDERFUL and our son is happy and receiving a spectacular education from AW Cox. My only complaint would maybe be with the library- some of the books brought home in kindergarten and first grade included stories involving suicide and spousal abuse that (even in passing) are probably not necessary for elementary aged children the "learning moments" for those topics are perhaps better approached at a more mature age.

    Parental involvement in this public elementary school is phenomenal. The teachers are wonderful as is the administration. The school has a fantastic music program great outdoor play equipment a fabulous new gymnasium excellent computer resources and an extensive library headed up by an extremely knowledgable school media specialist. There is a before/after school program which is well staffed. Kindergarten classes are AM or PM half-days but there is a separate Kindergarten daycare available which allows for an optional full day. Parents are encouraged to attend a short 'Helping Hands' seminar in order to participate in various classroom activities.
