Mrs. Kay is so honored that you allow me to partner with you to love and educate your precious children. She looks forward to watching your children learn, grown and prosper.
Executive Administrator, Bessie Watts

She enjoys greeting everyone with a warm “GOOD MORNING”. The children get a loving hug and a “POW” (fist bump) which helps start their day in a good way.
