We are the grandparents of one of your first grade students, and we attended Grandparents Day last Friday, April 25th. We were very impressed by the school and it's entire staff. The program of the day was handled very professionally, and was extremely organized. We felt very pleased to know that our grandson is attending such a well run school. Want to thank everyone who helped make Grandparents Day such a happy event.
