  2. Hi Jennifer,

    Please add Maryville Christain School to your list. We are a category 2 & 3 school. Our enrollment is closed for this year, but there’s always next year. Thanks!

  4. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website. It appears as if some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Cheers
