As a school, we worked together to win a $10,000 prize beating out many schools in the county, not just district, in a huge show of support and a goal in mind. The focus on science & technology has definitely promoted my kids' interest in the subjects, and I'm happy to see them thriving as prolific readers AND writers.

Way to go Church Street! Read less
