Years at Graland: 2

Why did you choose Graland?
We chose Graland mostly because it felt right. We loved the curriculum and the teaching methods we learned about; however, overall Graland just felt like a great fit for our family. Moving to Denver with no family around and only knowing a few people, we wanted a school where the parents and families were very involved and welcoming. We have definitely found a great group of parents and friends at Graland because of the importance they place on the parent and family involvement in the school. 

Pre-K &  2

What are some of your child(ren)'s interests & extracurricular activities? Both Addy and Kenzie are currently doing soccer and dance after school. They love going to the park, biking, swimming, skiing, jumping on our trampoline, and overall just being very active. When they are not out and about doing the above activities, you can find them coloring, drawing, and playing dress-up/family/any sort of imaginative play in our playroom.

Tell us some fun facts about you and/or your family:
We moved to Denver about 3 years ago from Southern California. Neither my husband or I had ever lived in a place that snowed (besides a short 1 year stint abroad). When we decided to move here, I had actually never been to Denver! But now, 3 years and 3 houses later, we absolutely love it! We find ourselves going to the mountains way more than we ever went to the beach. :)
