My daughter began at this school in Kindergaten. She is now in third grade. I have found that EVERY teacher in EVERY grade level my daughter has been in is OUTSTANDING, CARING, and CONCERNED. I also have a 5th grade son and the same applies to his teachers. This has not always been easy, I'll admit, for my children's teachers because they have many behavioral and other health issues. I have always been able to ask their teachers about information concerning their progress. We as parents have to take the initiative to ask these questions about our child's progress otherwise no one will think we care enough. I don't understand those parents who complain about a school but will not volunteer to improve it. I know for a fact that the school has asked for parent volunteers to do playground monitoring but there was no response. We as parents, don't understand that asking for our IDs before gaining admittance into the school is not "harassment" as some other parents would have you believe but a safety measure to keep our children safe from possible harm. I feel that ANY and ALL parents should first join the PTA or at the very least (and I mean VERY LEAST) volunteer their time on their days off as I do. I volunteer by doing work for the school and teachers at home instead of driving to the school. I know this is hard but I go to my job on other days. If I can do it so can everyone else. Doing this shows other parents, teachers, and your child that you care. Since most of us are in the army we understand what a chain of command is. For school, it would be: The teacher then The principal. Some if my neighbors forget this, and go straight to the principal. If someone wasn't happy with our job performance, we wouldn't like it if they went straight to our supervisor. This would implyi that they really don't want a solution to the problem; they just want to complain. THINK ABOUT IT MY FRIENDS WHAT IS THIS REALLY TEACHING OUT CHILDREN? Keep in mind we teach our children how to deal with life by our actions. We might teach them to blame others when things don't go right or to take responsibility for their own actions.
