Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary School 4

My kids are doing very well in the school. The fourth and sixth grade teachers are great. My only concern is the sixth graders have to walk around with a ton of books in their bags. If this school continues to have 6th graders they need to put lockers inside. The best thing is to buy your child a roller bag with wheels. The sixth graders also have a massive amounts of homework including math and on the weekends. It can be good at times but, it stresses students out over time. The principle Ms. Smith is ok, but she seems a little dismissive to the students. As a parent I have seen it with my own eyes. And, what is it with teachers not letting students use the bathroom? My 6th grade son almost had an accident coming home from the teacher not letting him go. Same thing happend to him in the fifth grade, he asked to be excused to the restroom teacher said no, he threw up all over thr classroom floor. PTA IS EXCELLENT, I take my hats off to them. Other than that school is good, I just don't approve of the tons of books with no lockers and the teachers being strict about bathroom usage. I can't really complain about my son having too much HW because it keeps him off the video games, and his phone.

The teachers are pretty good. I feel like Some of the 6th grade teachers lack patients.

My son has way too much math Mon-fri and on the weekend. A break would be nice. They already have big winter packets, spring break packets, etc.

I had a failing child in math in 5th and 6th grade the teachers would not give up on him. With help from myself as the parent and the teacher, there was a big difference.

Again, Its up to the parents to develope respect in their children. Children can be respectful at home and disrepectful at school. The school can't demand a child to behave.

Some of the 6th grade teachers are dismissive and they make all the good students suffer because of 2 or 3 bad apples.

Ms. Taylor (1st grade) thank you for being so sweet to children but yet keeping them focused on their academic achievement.

I absolutely like the new principal Ms. Brandy Smith. She's involved. She's humble. She's open to ideas and suggestions. My two kids are in 1st grade and I don't have any complaints. 6th grade teachers are involved and caring to prepare the kids for the real middle school.
