I went to this school in the early 90's and look back on those days with fondness. I remember reading a lot, running a lot (playground was HUGE, though we didn't have the equipment they have now), and learning a lot. The teachers were all wonderful and found different ways to keep our attention, while educating us. They were fair and respectful. I appreciate my time there, from kindergarten thru graduation of the fifth grade. And the building itself is pretty cool too, with the winding stairs and the gym/cafeteria/stage in the center of the building! It's rather cool how they fit so much into such a small looking building. I noticed that the student population has decreased by 9% over the past 5 years, but I wonder how much of that could be blamed on people having to relocate due to the flood plains. I know that my home is no longer there. Also, there are/were quite a few home-schoolers in that area as well.
