    29 School is a wonderful school! The teachers are very involved with the children's academic success the administrators are understanding and they are all willing to work with parents to make sure that our kids are a success... no wonder they were a Title I Distinguished School for 2004. Mrs. Harbace the principal has worked with my son who has a harder time in school than his little sister and I am ever grateful for her help!
