Great elementary school with fantastic teachers, staff and a wonderful parent community. The learning cottages look like Swiss chalets and are very nice! They organized several busses in the morning and afternoon between them and the old school location. The Christmas tree sale is also very convenient. They have good pine trees (Fraser fir and another kind), wreaths and a few accessories at good prices.
