"I also loved the pictures of 2nd graders working with her class on their Book Club - a great idea. My daughter is really enjoying the book club and is getting so much out of it in terms of personal character development. This past book choice was especially good for a discussion on bullying and how failing to speak out against bullying can be just as hurtful as actively participating in bullying.
– Mrs. Gombis, a mother of a three year old and a second grader
“My husband and I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate all the time and dedication you give to the children. The highlight of our day is picking up my son and listening to him recite his day’s adventures. He has been so happy and has learned so much this year. Each of the teachers has been so creative in their teaching methodologies. We have been quite amazed with regard to all of his projects from his polar bear story board/diorama to his counting ghost wheel to his homemade pickles!”
