Jack is the pride and joy of David and Kelly Snapp. That’s why it was so important to choose the right school for him. They wanted a place where Jack could flourish, so they did their homework. 

They looked into every option, including area charter schools and their neighborhood school, Farine Elementary. 

In the end, Farine won by a landslide. 

“We dropped by Farine one afternoon and asked if we could take a tour,” David says of his first interaction. “The staff walked us around the classrooms and basically, we fell in love with the school and knew this is where we were supposed to be.” 

Fast forward three years, Jack is a third grader at Farine. He’s part of the dual-language and the gifted-and-talented (GT) programs.

“I feel like I’m getting a great education. The teachers are great, the students are great, and I love the school very much. It’s helping me get ready for middle school,” Jack says proudly. 

And he’s not the only one fitting right in. 

Kelly is also very involved. Having spent several years on the school’s PTO and now serving as the president, she believes the organization has a huge impact on the school. 

“We do whatever we can to support our teachers, administration and kiddos,” Kelly says. “We want to make things better for them.” 

And it’s not just the PTO that makes things better for Farine. it’s passionate families like the Snapps that advocate and support their neighborhood schools.
