    The quality of Jean Callison Elementary School is evident in its students. We have been privileged to know many of those students in the past 19 years and watched them get a good start at Callison that lasted all the way to college. Kudos to the teachers and parents of this wonderful school too!

    Everyone is great! Staff parents and teachers! We are working hard so that the kids 'feel' the current budget crisis as little as possible! Everyone is pulling together to help our district through the SOS campaign!

    I love how the school allows you to eat breakfast or lunch with the kids in the cafeteria! The teachers and staff do a wonderful job about making sure the kids don't feel the effects of the budget cuts or economy when they're at school. Teachers spend a lot of their personal funds to have basic supplies available for their students and parents give what they can whenever the school reaches out to them. The school and the community are just awesome!

    Our son has been attending Callison Elementary since Kindergarten and is now in 6th Grade. He has had wonderful teachers who have all been able to effectively blend the academic work with lots of fun and creative process. Our son has enjoyed his experiences at this school tremendously and the number of active parents involved in PTC ensures the ongoing continuity of this high level of quality education and activities. We thank the teachers administration and support staff who are very dedicated to what they do each day! Marc Rios-Klein
