I love coming home everyday and telling my mom what we are learning about in Science. Mrs Tornabane is the best at making things fun for her students. I am so happy with the way she teaches us!!

I appreciate Mr. Kirkman and all that he brings to his Spanish classes. He does a wonderful job of teaching and making Spanish interesting. I have a freshman and senior in his Spanish classes and they both love his class and comment to me all the time about how great his class is and how they both feel like they learned something every time they walk out of his class. I feel very fortunate that both my kids have the opportunity to be taught by such an outstanding teacher! Keep up the great work Mr. Kirkman. You are very much appreciated!!

I appreciate my language arts teacher, Mr. Lighter, for making me laugh every day and he takes education very serious and he helps you when you don’t understand things. He is one of the many teacher’s I know who will always help

I appreciate that Mr.Bass is always out and about in the schools and getting to know the kids. On many occasions my kids have come home from school and said that they have chatted with Mr. Bass. He is never too busy to talk with them.
