Lawrenceville Elementary School2

My ex-husband registered our daughter. I went to withdraw her so that she can have a better education. They first stated that no then they said it would be okay as long as I bring documentation that I had custody of my daughter (since my ex refused to withdraw her). So, I went home which is more than 50 miles away and came back with the documentation. The administrative office said it will take 24 hours to prepare the information for the other school. So, I came back again the next day and the assistant principal stated that the office person gave me incorrect information and I would be REQUIRED to get my ex's permission. I asked to speak Mr. Gomez from their legal department and he stated that I didn't need to provide the school with any documentation. He stated that I could just register her at another school and that the withdraw paperwork made it easier. This has infuriated me because the assistant principal just said, "Sorry for the misunderstanding." The assistant prinicpal and the administrative office were apathetic towards my family's time and brought unnecessary grief without hesitation.
Lawrenceville Elementary is an AWESOME school! The ladies that run that school are a great team of leaders and not to mention the staff! The teachers are beyond great! My daughter started going to this school in Kindergarten (2011-2012 school year). She came in as a child that had never been in a (daycare or preschool) school setting a day in her life not knowing how to read, write, etc. And because the teachers at this school are strong & dedicated to helping the students grow, excel & exceed... 4 months into the school year, my child knew how to read, blend her sounds, etc! all because of her Kindergarten teacher. She still attends LES, but as a 1st grader now. She currently reads on a 3rd grade level and makes E & S Honor on a consistent basis. All because of the great leadership of the Principle & her staff. LES YOU ROCK :-)!!!
I really love this school. The teachers really care about the children and their education. Principal Johnson is second to none. The staff has an open door policy so that the parents can contact and talk to their child(ren's) teacher at anytime.
