Grassy Lake Elementary School4

Grassy Lake Staff and teachers work hard because they care. They push my child to be a better student. The office staff greets you with a smile, every staff member that works there is friendly whether they work in the cafeteria, janitor service, resources, etc. The teachers really do their best to provide a safe and fun environment for the students. The principal Ms. Cole keeps parents informed with automated calls to remind us of special events going on through out the year and reminders of days off, etc. I can't speak for every single teacher at this school, but those I have come in contact with because of my children have proven themselves 100 times over. My child was bullied by another student in kindergarten and I sent an email to the principal asking that my child not be put in any future classes with the bully and my child is now in 4th grade and my request has still been upheld without me having to send anymore emails.
My son attended Lost Lake Elementary for second grade and the first quarter of third grade. We then moved and he was enrolled at Grassy Lake. My son's new teacher was very supportive throughout his transition. He was expected to catch up on their classroom assignments in a short amount of time and did really well. As the school year is approaching the end, I have noted strong differences between LLES and GLES. My son has been afforded more challenges and opportunties. Homework is not mundane and repetitive. They have assigned more projects and a research paper. Online learning is a requirement not an option (such as the FCAT Explorer program and Raz Kids). After his experience at GLES, I feel like the curriculum at LLES was on 'auto pilot.' The teacher has been informative throughout her web site/emails. She has helped my son become a more responsible student.
Agree with the lack of wanting to move children. I know they have their reasons children are in each class, but believe it or not the parents do know when there isn't a good fit for their child. Love99% of the teachers, but the principal needs to be 'jumping on any issues the parents feel strongly about!
My Son has always been an A+ student, coming from Lost Lake and now Grassy Lake. This year, we discover he was absolutely incompatible with his new teacher and his grades went down dramatically. He begged to be moved to another class and so we requested the principal's office, over and over. However, our request was totally ignored. I am very disappointed at the way the issue was (or was not) handled by the principal's office. This year felt like torture to my son who, up to now, has always been excited to go to school.
i love the school. they have great kids and teachers.cool manners 2.awesome learning also.my favorite teachers are mrs.rozar,mr.garcia,miss smith,and mr.stalnaker.thats all the comments for now.there is more.good bye
This is an 'A' school in my books, the teachers take their time to educate the students, at first I taught it was too much for my fourth grader but then I saw the results; and I'm a very proud mom ;-) Thank you G.L.E.
