Our partnership has provided families with quality developmentally appropriate preschool experiences as well as a community for our families to grow and thrive. As Superintendent and as Principal I have been able to see first-hand the care provided and appreciate the time and energy from all who have supported this program over the years. The Laurel School building has been well cared for in our partnership and it is a joy to continue to see children and families climbing the steps to this beautiful schoolhouse. The traditions and history of our community continue to make us proud and grateful.”
