Sunnyside Elementary School 5

I have a sixth grader who has been attending Sunnyside since he was in first grade, a fourth grader, and now a kindergartner. All of our teachers have been very great. I have moved out of the district, but my children still attend Sunnyside. I would say to those who reviewed the school poorly that maybe the school is not the problem. It looks to me, judging by your comment, that you might not have any experience with school at all. My fourth grader would mark that statement up and down with red ink! Maybe you should try using correct grammar and sentence structure when complaining about a school!

Lydia is great. She just doesn't care for whining by students OR their parents, which is why you probably don't like her. My suggestion is to stop whining. You're awesome, too Ms. Dolly!

My son has been going to this school since 4th grade, now entering 6th.My son truly likes going to this school. The teachers are great as well as the principal. There is only one draw back (BAD APPLE) at this school. This would be Lydia that works in the office. She really has a bad attitude and is rude to the parents. She really shows she doesn't want to be there. The principal really needs to evaluate Lydia's presents at the school.

The foods serving in this school are horrific, even the fulltime birds on this campus didn't eat them. I am appalled that many faculty staff knew about this and no one takes actions, not voicing your opinion is as guilty as the wrong doers. The cook and the principal need to be accountable. Change the menu! Change the cooking staff! Do something! From my observation, the majority of the children drank their milk; 60%-70% of all the foods served to the kids went to the trash.

my child has been at this school since kindergarten (he is now entering 5th grade).The teachers are great, the staff is great, and you'll always see Dolly's smiling face greet you as you enter the office. They lost a great principal and some good teachers a year ago, but the new replacements do a good job considering they have big shoes to fill.I would like to see more involvment in the PTA they could use it- Not speaking english as a first language is a bonus! Not a disadvantage! Great neighborhood!
