    My son is in Kindergarten this year at Baggaley. The Teachers Principal and staff have helped make this transition a smooth one. I am so greatful that the people in this school care so much about the students and parents. I am extremally proud to have my son be a part of such a great school. My sons teacher Mrs. Wiesneski is so awesome. She loves her students as if they were her own kids. She gives them support when they are having a bad day away from home and she teaches them not only how to be good students but also how to be good people. She and all the teachers at Baggaley are Rock Stars in my book!
