I like having champs because you don't have to wear uniform Fridays and having straight a's so you get really cool prizes


Posted January 4, 2011

Champs Cards I felt left out because At eisenhower they have a system where you can dress down on Fridays, get to cut in front of people in the lunch line and get to sit where ever they want on Mondays. I really don t like the system because I makes me feel like I m one of the bad kids that did something wrong and is in trouble for it. The party for the Champs people is on the first Wednesday of the quarter and the people that are on the list get to play volleyball and get to go to lunch early that kind of stuff. When I wasn t on Champs for the first quarter we did a test and for the next 2 hours we had just read because she didn t have anything else on our lesson plans that day so it was boring. So to me I think the Champs system leave kids out and I think really the champs card system should be for grades and behavior.

I feel that my child has received an excellent education at Eisenhower. She went on to Sumner and was ready for the hard work there. The teachers really cared about her. I felt comfortable coming up or calling when I had questions.
