    My grandson is attending 3rd grade at Lothrop. He loves this school and his teacher Mr. Atwood is the best teacher he has ever had. He loves school and his teacher. Much better than Prairie Wind. At first I was skeptical of him going to a North Omaha school but the teachers and principal are friendly and much easier to communicate with than at Prairie Winds.
