News from Dr. LaRusso

This is an awesome time of year. Of course school is in full swing but it is also a time for family and reflecting on all the blessings we have to be thankful for.

To name just a few:

  • Supportive and involved parents and community members
  • Dedicated teaching professionals focused on the academic and social growth of each of our students.
  • A beautiful and well maintained campus.
  • A child nutrition staff that not only prepares healthy meals but also takes the time to get to know our students.
  • Caring Before and Afterschool Staff and Bus Drivers
  • The best kids in the world to serve each and every day!
