My kids can't say enough about Coach Carter. When I ask how school was on a given day his name often comes up. They love his obstacle course each year with Mr. Bones. As a new family in school I will never forget that my daughter needed a shot and she was freaking out in the nurses office. Coach Carter happened to walk by and asked if we needed help. He held my daughter and made light of the situation afterward. My kids love him! Thanks for going above and beyond.
Every teacher has different expectations, but my kids have been expected to read every night. I appreciate when they have had a homework packet due once a week instead of having to ask them each night if they remember if they still have homework that night.
My daughter has received tutoring in math and reading, which she still enjoys, even though these subjects have been challenging to her. She has been learning persistence in these areas with the help of school tutors.
The atmosphere is positive whenever I am in the school between students and teachers. The student population is diverse, and there are some students that are hearing impaired. Coach Carter has incorporated signs into his coaching and instruction time and my 3rd grader has learned some sign language at recess in Sign Language Club.
I have seen teachers and coaches on multiple occasions school sports coach kids about positive aspects of sportsmanship. Adults back it up by allowing all the students play and they keep coaching positive. They also offer instruction to students still learning the sport during after school games. Kids have great attitudes due in part to the examples the teachers model and instill in the kids.
My kids moved in from a village in Alaska and I love the extra support offered here to help them meet their weaknesses. The standards are high and my students love their teachers. They love Coach Davis, Mrs. Klaes, Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Machida, Mrs. Myers and Principal Kyra Aizstrauts. Thank you for your dedication!
As a foreign child, Jerry is making an amazing improvment in learning and comunicating in English at school. This of course should be attributed to his teachers, Mrs. Dubowski, Mrs. Claar, Mrs. G. and other kind teachers. I really appreciate that. Jerry now loves his school very much.
