Spirit Creek Middle School2

There are some very good staff and teachers that is trying to make an effort to educate our children, but on the other hand there are those who need to be reprimanded. I am just disgusted with the conduct of the Asst. Principle that abused her power and cover-up for teachers that need to be monitored, as well as the Principle for allowing the behavior to continue. COVER - UP and they give false statements, one of the things for what I witness. How many children records have they tarnished and have got away with it. The State need to supervise, investigate and appoint overseers to monitor them if the Board of Education is not able to.
I think that many people fail to realize that good things do happen at Spirit Creek. Of course, none of this is ever mentioned; people just love to harp on the negative. For instance, nobody wants to talk about how the Jr. Beta Club organized a school wide fundraiser for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the entire student body raised almost $3000 for cancer research. Nobody wants to talk about how the entire student body donated canned goods for the Ronald McDonald House. I may also add that the Jr. Beta Club personally delivered these items to the Ronald McDonald House where they spent a Saturday re-stocking and organizing shelves, etc. Nobody wants to talk about Mayor Copenhaver speaking at the school and remarking on how well the students were behaved during the assembly. Believe it or not, there are well-behaved, intelligent kids at SCMS! And dedicated teachers too!!
It is bad to say, but I think this schools professionalism is in question. My daughter moved from a DOD (Department of the Army) School in Germany to the Richmond County School and the difference in everyday business is unbelievable. From the time that I walked into this school, I have felt no since of welcoming, nor caring.
