Holladay has helped my godson go from an unhappy student to a happy enthusiastic student. Coming from a different state my godson disliked school but now he smiles and loves going. The Principal and assistant principal are awesome and helped make the transition a very positive experience. The two young ladies in the office are very nice and professional. Look forward to next year

in September My son will start kindergarten, my daughter pre k and the staff has already helped me feel safe for my babies first time at school. Parents feel so unsecure on the first time kids go to school, Holliday makes it feel like I'm dropping my kids at their favorite baby sitter! What a great start to 2017/2018 school year.
