  • I spent all my best years there....from Kindergarten untill my eight grade year. I will cherish the memories I have had there, good and bad. I hope later in the future I can be able to see former students whom I have attended with during my years there. I know that it made me a better person after I graduated. I thank you for the years there and hopefully send my children to the school I have went so many years ago.
