it isn't as nice as the mega complexes out by the Orland Mall or elsewhere, but this is a good solid theatre that is well run and well maintained. If there is a movie playing here that you want to see, you will be perfectly happy going here instead of driving further away for the same thing.
This is a really good elementary school with great test scores. They are soon to have a new building to accomodate the growth of the town. The teachers here are really good at every grade level. The Principal is one of the best around.
This is a very nice and modern facility in a pleasant small town. Nobody likes to have loved ones in a Nursing Home, but when it is necessary you want a place like this. There are some nice tables and outside paths -- and the staff works hard to keep the stay in their facility safe and medically beneficial.
and they will work hard to get you seen by a Doctor when you need to be seen. I've called early on Saturday mornings with kid ear infections, and they always work us in within a couple of hours. The kids really like the staff and you feel comfortable with their expertise.
:( Budget cuts, falling test scores, unmotivated staff and students who are just fed up. This is a school that has had problems recently with gangs and violance. The town passed a bond referendum for a new building which should start construction soon -- hopefully that will help to put them on the right track.
unfortunately they have a hard time getting enough money to fill it with books. But they work hard at keeping their interlibrary loan program useful. I usually get my requested books in a couple of days. Budget cuts mean that the library is closed on Fridays and Sundays. They have very limited Saturday hours.
The school has been fighting budget problems and overcrowding in recent years. Test scores are poor. Unfortunately it seems to be hard to attract and maintain high quality teachers in this setting. They have installed new playground equipment in recent years, but it is hard to get kids excited about school when there is little in the way of extracurriculars to offer.
Don't let the lower scores of the higher grades fool you regarding this Elementary school. They have had budget problems over recent years, but they are still turning out excellent scores on the Standardized test - well above State Averages. Most of the teachers are well educated and experienced and the Admin staff is top notch. The building is in decent condition, there is a nice playground next door.
This is a middle to large well established Church in the Crete area. Their service has a little of something for all types of worship. Depending upon the differenct services, the worship style will vary from modern and contemporary to more traditional. There is a well run Clothing donation program operated out of the Church which is an excellent Community Service program.
You may hate to pay the price, but sometimes you just can't find the things carried in this store anywhere else. There are some lower end items that make nice gifts if you know somebody who collects this type of ethnic product.
