Shadeville Elementary School5

My son loves his school. He also loves his resource teachers. He has came along well with his IEP( Individualize Education Program). They offer meetings at any time. The principal responds quickly to matters rather it be an individual or group matter. I have also spotted some employees who are trained in emergency services, however they may not be introduced to have this background knowledge. However, I believe this background skill was a bonus to them being hired.
Many of the teachers here are wonderful! Doing everything they can for their kids. The current principal however has made my experience horrible! I have caught her being less than truthful to me as a parent. She is nothing more than a diplomat completely useless in the running of a school. As happens when any "company" has poor management it seems to be every teacher for themselves. I hate to see this happen as Shadeville was the best of the best when we were growing up but apparently the mighty have fallen.
i have had children in shadeville for most of the last 17 years. shadeville has lost alot of my suport due to some really bad changes in the principal leadership. we used to be the school to strive to be. now so many bad decisions are being made by the powers that be that we could be heading us toward anninemitie and financial struggle. because of personal feelings many great, experienced teachers have left and drove away thousand of volunteer hours that gave that extra help to the kids and the teachers who need and deserve it, as well as earning tens of thousand of dollars for new books, computer updates and software and new safe play equipment. unfortunately the others grasping to be as great as us dont have nearly as far to reach.
Shadeville is an excellent school. They use centers of education revolving around letter themes. For instance, this week the letter is P. My son's class is having a pajama party, baking peanut brittle (cooking), planting plants (science) and reading & enacting the story of Peter Pan (reading, story comprehension). They will also have a pizza party for some good fun. The only thing I wish the school would have more concentration in science. They may be forced to when science is introduced to the FCAT.
