I have seen a big difference at Hazel Strauch this year. It's a Good difference. I would like to thank some of the employees of TRUSD for making our school better. I know it will take some time to get things in place, but it was a GREAT start! We need to get more parents to be involved in our school again. I know there are parents that have tried to help but didn't see any difference. I want to tell those parents that things are different NOW and for them to TRY to get involved again. With Mr. Orlando, Mrs. Rodriguez and Mr. Rushton We have a GREAT Leadership Team. We could ALL work together to make our school a better place for our children. We need to support our Teachers ALOT!!! Helping our Teachers will help our children's Education! Like i and another parent use to say. We are each one fish. We need A LOT of Fish to make a School! We ALL NEED TO WORK 2GETHER! So go down and see what you could do to Help. Ask your child's teacher what you can do to make their jobs easier. We as parents need to see that Hazel Strauch is a 2nd home for our children. Some of you will say it's their 1st home because our children are there most of the day. LET'S GET INVOLVED! HELP OUR SCHOOL!!!!

I have seen the school improved this year. I wish the school will be able to bring more activities for the kids. Music program and more clubs for the kids will be great to see again at Hazel Strauch. We have lost those things through the years. We need to make the school a better place for our children's future.

There is a whole new attitude at this school this year. They are more family friendly and child welfare aware. I felt good putting my child back in this school this year. Let's keep praying for more good things to come with the "New Administration."

To the parent who wrote on February, 27 2013. I just want to address your concern. It's hard to believe you are a parent, did you proof read you comment? or did you read it out loud to listen your self? I say this because everything you wrote is not true. The after school program is not available for Kinders. And besides every parent wants what is in the best interest of their kids. So when we talk about wet bathrooms or that the school has changed we know what we are talking about. We have been there for many years and know the school when it was GREAT! and we have realized that it is going down hill. Due to poor LEADERSHIP! So next time before you put a comment know your facts and be a parent and do not point fingers at another parent. who do you think you are? Think about this before you reply.

This school has been the best thing for my family. We moved back here this year and there are sports and afterschool programs for kids in K-5th grade. They aren't even charging money. My kids are going on 2 fieldtrips this year, they got none last year in Natomas. There's a parent who goes around talking to as many people as she can about how the parents should be using the student computers during the day. How crazy is that? The school is for students, she's an adult, she can go find her own. Don't know why this lady has made it her job to complain about everything, even the water pressire in the bathrooms. Most of us just pretend we dont understand her. School choice is there for people who are unhappy and want to go somewhre else.

This school administration has lost contact with what pre-K-5 grade is about. There is no music or art taught in this school. They have a computer lab that parents have been told is fully functional but my child's class never used this whole school year. Yes sports are important, for those good at sports. Free Daycare after school is important for those that need someone other than a family member to take care of their children while they are at work. I too saw a few parents that were speaking out this year but, I saw that they were trying to stand up for what is truly needed at the school. To call them troublemakers or trying to take over is so unfair. I think one of them was even elected to the PTA and she was pushed out of the school. There were a lot of us parents that saw what these people were trying to do at the school and it was good. Oh and by the way, my child wasn't in sports, like a huge amount of children at this school. There is NO enriching programs at this school unless you play sports. Also the test scores keep going lower and lower. Sure there are parents that have a child who had good experience. But for every one of them at this school there are ten of us.

I'm also a parent who takes my children to this school. I have also seen parents speak out. I feel they are speaking out because some of us parents won't speak out. I work so I don't know exactly what goes on at school.. For these parents to be their and see things we don't see. Lets us parents know what's really going on. I think it's fine for them to do what they do as long as it benefits the children and the school. I talk to my kids and they love their teacher they love going to school. Now if there are issues kids are not involved in and these parents see something wrong. I have no problem for those parents to speak out. One thing I do see when I go to the school is there are more after school staff members around then parents. I see the VP more then the Principal. The school seems a little disorganized. The school doesn't feel or look welcoming.
