—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 3, 2007

This kids need to be out of school clothes because those uniforms are to high to keep trying to buy every year.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 19, 2007

The only problem i find with SOUTHERN CHOCTAW is the lack of effort shown by the teachers in responding to concerned parents not living in the GILBERTTOWN area or even in the state of ALABAMA. I sent each of my 3 children's teachers and rec only one response and that took over a month. I understand my responsibility and role i play in my childrens education and their well being but it is not easy for me to take off from work as often as needed so i figured what better way of communicating with teachers than e-mail this way i dont interrupt their family time with untimely phone calls at dinner or family time i would like to see improvment in this area other than that i love SOUTHERN CHOCTAW AND ITS STAFF 'GO INDIANS.'
