Thank you for taking the time to meet with us.  We enjoy sharing your child's progress with you.  It is especially rewarding when our students score so well on their Iowa Assessments.  Thank you for sharing words of encouragement and gratitude.  Your kind and supportive affirmations build up the teachers and inspire them to finish this year strong.
We are truly invested in your children.  We want each of them to flourish academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, email your student's teacher or give the office a call and set up an appointment.  Let's keep the communication going.

On Friday morning the teachers met to share how they saw God's faithfulness exhibited in our classrooms, through our students, and in our community.  Then we began making plans for the 2018-2019 school year.  Here is the teaching line up for next year!
