I have been VERY disappointed in the 5th grade educators at Lakeland Elementary School this year! I live five minutes from Max Larsen Elementary School, yet my son has to go to that school to board a bus for a 40 minute ride each way..then they release him 20 minutes early to accomodate the bussing schedule. I've spent hundreds of dollars driving him to school, because he misses the bus, and if he's 15 minutes late he's marked absent for the first 1/2 of the day..now the teacher is talking about holding him back for excessive absences. The teacher doesn't teach but delegates that duty to the students. He brings home worksheets with no explanation how to do them (IF he remembers to bring them home at all). I've tried to communicate with the teachers but there is limited communication. The principal has his head stuck in the sand, and everyone wants to point their finger back at the parents. I didn't go to college to be a teacher, and I don't don't get paid to be a teacher..that's what they are there for. I've had five children attend Lakeland, and he will be the last! I'll send my youngest to a charter school if he has to attend Lakeland Elementary. I feel it's been a wasted yr

I just love taking my grandchildren to school to hear Mr. Parker start the day. I have even got to the point when walking down the hall I will recite the school pledge with them and can't wait to hear a child try to tell a joke. Mr. Parker is awesome in involving the children in the start of the day

Mr. Parker is amazing when it comes to how he treats the children, along with his reactions in taking action when incidences come along.

We really appreciate Mr. Decker and Mrs. Dally's dedication to student learning. My daughter is happier than she was at her old school.
