    I attended this school back in my K-2 grade years during 2000. This school brings a lot of lovely memories to me and their staff are wonderful. I miss this place!

    Mrs. Dayce in first grade is the best teacher ever!!!! My son was with her last year and he calls her every once in a while and she is just so polite and nice to him whenever she talks to him. James does not stop talking about you. Thanks for all your support and patience with my boys.

    Although the accessories for teaching in the school is out of date the teachers and staff are top quality. The teachers use their equipment pretty well. All i can say is that Elsa Widenmann brings good memories to students and parents alike.

    While my grandson's teacher was A number one I was disappointed in principal and other administrative personel. There is poor follow through on promises little actuall supervision on playground and inconsistency in rules. I only had dealings with two teachers the first of which was completly at a loss as to what approaches to take the second was right on very helpful and without her I would be balled now. I am working on other placement for him but must go through the red tape.
