Little Birch Elementary is a new, state of the art facility with dedicated staff from the Principal, to the Secretary to the Faculty and service personnel. It is in rural area and they offer what they can for the children as far as athletics. Parents are welcome and can help in many ways to make the teachers' jobs easier. I am very proud to be a part of the Little Birch Elementary School.
