I just wanted to let you know that [my daughter] is truly LOVING school!! Thought I would never see her do her homework independently! She always wanted me to help her along in the past. I still help with her studying, but as for the homework, she wants to try and do on her own! She even talks about what was discussed in school and what she is learning about. This has never happened before! The school is doing wonders for her!! We have you and your staff to thank!!
