"Captivating Every Student, Every Day!"

Kudos - singing the praises of our staff :)

Many thanks to Tim Cassidy for pulling together an amazing summer camp event as part of our field day. We are looking forward to the second half of field day and are most grateful for all of your hard work!

Kudos to all of our students and staff who so graciously welcomed Dr. Spence to our school. He was so impressed with the warm welcome he received, the student's ability to explain what they were learning and why, and with the student centered focus at Trantwood.
