So many people. Thanks to Mrs. Klein for encouraging my daughter and being patient. Thanks to Mr. Martinez for really pushing my son past his comfort zone. Thanks to Mrs. Krueger for being kind and making our school better. Thanks to Paula and the office staff for being amazing. :)
We initially went to a Parker Elementary school, out of our district. It was good but not great. We didn't know anyone from that school and were really missing a sense of community. We chose to send both our kids (K and 1st) to RCE this year and I'm so happy!
Paula in the front office is amazing--she remembered my name and my kids names after a year; the office staff and the teachers are really kind, friendly, real, and personable.
We were worried our son wouldn't be challenged but he is--his teacher watches to make sure he has what he needs at his level. Our Kindergartner is doing addition and writing.
Lastly--it seems like so many parents are involved and it's easy to get involved yourself, even for an hour a week. It's easy to make friends with the parents and really feel like part of the community. This is a small-town school and I just love it to pieces. :)
Today I rate a low score because my kindergardener has been out of class going on 3 weeks now..due to a bullying classmate threatening to being a knife to school and chop up the teacher. Apparently I am not allowed to get reassuring the normal way..to know if the parents were ever called, bag checked, punishment, etc...picketing is in my future.
