The 5th and 6th grade teachers are only interested in students who do not have to struggle for their grades. They do not understand that struggling is in and of itself a learning process. They are viciously mean spirited to males who have an opinion and girls who question too much.
I have to agree with the post regarding the current state of Stony Creek's administration. I've gone through more red tape and circles to ensure the safety of my disabled child than I care to say. That said, the teaching staff, aids and office assistants are class acts. I wouldn't have my child in this school, if not for them. A+ to them!
Most of the posts here are from a Stony Creek administration that is long gone - the current administration makes no effort to improve things for the students, often lying to get concerned parents off their backs. However, the teaching staff is truly the shining star that makes sending my three children there bearable. Most of the teachers truly are the best at what they do!
When I attended Stony Creek Mike Conners was my principal, now my own children attend the school and it is such a wonderful feeling knowing he is still there and working so hard for our kids. This school also has a great department for the children with special needs. They go out of their way every day to help. I am very gratful for the staff at Stony Creek and will continue my three childrens education there until junior high school.
Mike Connors is one of the best in the business. He is the role model on how principals should be. The children should always come first. The only downside to the school is that the parents are not as involved as they should be and think the school should solve their problems wtih their children, that is not the school's job. The parents and school should work together and Mike is always available to anyone who asks. He is the best.
The principal at stony creek, Mr. Connors, is a wonderful principal who makes the children feel welcomed and seems to know them all. It is nice to have someone who puts the children first. My experiences with schools left me a little bitter, until we moved close to this school. It is a wonderful school with the motto, 'Children come first'.
