the staff at this school work really hard to ensure success for all students! Parents complain that there aren't enough events to bring everyone together, when the truth is that parents don't show up! We're lucky if we get even half of parents to come to parent conferences. The staff cares about the students in their classes. We need parents to become more involved and more interested to working with the teachers at home.
Office Staff, Teachers and Parents need to communicate. We all need to do our parts to make the system work as a whole. We need more communication between office and teachers and parents! Maybe more events that bring parents and teachers together. Like a book night, or once a month family fun nights. These type of things help parents get involved and lets kids see them involved! I don't see any of this going on. I hate feeling like I am just another number! Some of us care!
I believe this school is bad area. After school tutoring is only children who are head not the ones who are flunking and needing the help. The principal and office help are always too much in a hurry to deal parents. They approach parents and students with rude tones and upset. As if you bother them. Staff needs to change so can the parents. Staff needs to lay down some limits and enforce the rules. Parents talk staff doesn't.
