I believe the outstanding and dedicated staff is to be commended for their knowledge & application of grade level curriculum and the devotion of on to seeing that their students are exposed to material in such creative ways that are ale to easily, as well as meaningful, daily life connections and vice versa. I have received ideas and helpful information from primary teachers employed by Waterford Memorial Elementary School over the years. I have also been grateful for ideas, especially in my earlier years as a new teacher in a major city refreshing nature activities were welcomed. Thank
