We’ve had another fantastic week at Renfro.  We have enrolled 10 new students in just the past 2 weeks.  It’s always fun to welcome new faces to our school community.  Renfro’s current enrollment is 602 students.  That’s a lot of smiling faces and unique personalities and I couldn’t be happier about it!  We are so fortunate in Collinsville to have classroom size limits—20 in Pre-K, 24 in Kinder through 3rd grade and 28 in 4th grade.  Thank you for asking and answering one another’s questions on our Renfro PTA Facebook page.  I love our school family!
