  • I was a student at Kolmar. I was there from kindergarden to 3rd grade. My parents had us move over the summer 2005. Kolmar was an amazing school. The teachers are very nice. Education was very important to everyone. Lunch time and reccese were always fun. I miss Kolmar very much and I would do anything to be back there. Even though I am in 8th grade and moving up to 9th grade after this so I wouldn't really be able to go to Kolmar anymore. All my friends were left back at Kolmar and in Crestwood. All my friends know how much I love Kolmar. Mrs. Thompson was very funny and I miss her very much. This really is an amazing school. Very good educated, too.
