First grade teacher Mrs. Culver was amazing just what my son needed she, the assistant principal and the principal all showed true concern for my son. They all wanted my son to succeed, and he did. They looked out for him and kept in close contact with me. I appreciate the help they offered and how they went above and beyond even helping my little guy find his jackets his lost almost weekly. Love this school.
