I used to go to this school. Im now in middle school, going to 8th now, and I LOVED that school. Ive been there since K-5th grade. The teachers are nice, the principal Mrs.Decker knows almost EVERYONE'S name. The teachers make learning fun and you have lots of cool field trips. The staff is very nice and helpful! I love this school. I will never forget my years in this school. :)
