Kudos to our Students & Staff

"

I just wanted to write to you to convey our deep appreciation of your teaching methods. I remember  attending  the the back to school night when you told us what you would be covering and why you would do so. 

Sowing the seeds of enquiry and ability to conceptualize concepts is what is missed by many who merely strive for breath over depth of study. 

I really love to see the change in (my child) as it happened. 

Kudos to you."

"Just a quick note to thank you all for taking the time to meet with me yesterday. Your dedication and thoughtfulness have made the transition to middle school wonderful for (my child). My husband and I appreciate all that you do."
Parent of a 6th grade student

"I was quizzing (my daughter) on her Science info for your last test and I have to compliment you. You reinforce the info in so many different ways and make things so relatable. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed. You are truly a fine educator."
