    Woohoo!  Its starting to feel like Spring!  Your website administrator missed a few shoutouts (my bad!), so we have a lot to catch up on!


    Ms. Carpenter:

I continue to be in awe in how she goes above and beyond!!!" and "Mrs. Carpenter has been an amazing teacher! She is a wonderful example of adaptability and perseverance! She has shown dedication to her students and making sure they feel important and successful. We are blessed that our daughter has had such an amazing teacher!"

We truly appreciate how special she has made this crazy year."  AND  "Mrs. Strader has done such an amazing job with virtual school. She laugh echoes through our home and has our son smiling throughout his day. We feel lucky that he was in her class."

    Ms. Snidemiller:

    "Mrs. Snidemiller has a talent for getting our 6 yr old excited for virtual learning! She is so patient and kind. We appreciate her listening to our son's stories because he really needs someone, besides his boring parents, to talk to each day :)"

    My son absolutely adores Mrs. Seibel, and so enjoys being in her 4th grade class. She is fun, engaging, organized and makes virtual learning something to be excited about. We can’t say enough about her; she has been such a blessing to our son this year and we appreciate all her hard work in adapting to this odd school year!
