Meet Our Team

Parents, we encourage you to stay in constant communication with your child's teacher. Successful education does not stop at the end of the school day. Parents need to reinforce what their children learn in the classroom and create an environment in the home that facilitates learning. If you have any questions regarding your child's education, please contact his/her teacher to discuss the situation.
