I have been having problems with bullying. My daughter is constantly disrought coming home from school, as she is being tormented by her peers. Kids in her class didn't give her valentines and handed her Valentine Cards back to her. We home-made them with her picture and a candy. It just breaks my heart to know that these kids could be so cruel at such a young age. Doesn't the teacher see what's going on? Why wouldn't she call me to let me know or interfere with all the name calling my daughter recieves? I might change schools.
Tomek-Eastern Elementary School is a great place for kids to learn! The teachers care deeply for their students and Mr. Alward, the principal is outstanding - he connects with the children and they love him. The office secretaries are kind and friendly to everyone. The custodial, kitchen and para-pros care about every child that attends. The teachers are committed to excellence, have high standards and treat every child with respect and dignity - I wouldn't send my two daughters anywhere else for an education - thank you Tomek!!!!
I have had 3 children in the Fenton School district and at one time or another some of them have attended all three elementary schools. Tomek is, by far, the best school. My youngest now attends there and I absolutely love everything about it. The teaching staff is superb and very committed to giving my son the best education possible. The other staff - kitchen ladies, the outside aides before and after school, and the office staff are always very friendly and helpful and always have a smile on their faces. I almost forgot the best thing about Tomek - their new principal.
I have had the opportunity to be closely involved with half of a dozen schools in Michigan. As a whole, the staff at Tomek are ndoubtedly the most welcoming, committed, qualified, and effective educators I have worked with. The district is clearly committed to the growth of it's students but the daily, hands-on commitment to the students by the teachers and staff is apparent as soon as you have the chance to speak with any one of them. They have embraced the IB philosophies and are well on their way to becoming an IB World School. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to learn from the staff and administration at Tomek.
Really happy with the new Principal, he is very involved with the students. The entire staff supervises the dynamics of the student body and bullying is rare but nipped in he bud when it does happen - which is rare.
By far the most remarkable group of teachers and staff in the country. Highly recommend.
Tomek Eastern is a top notch school with highly qualified teachers who are knowledgeable and caring. From the ladies in the office to the aides in the cafeteria...it is a warm and inviting school. I am also excited that the school is well on it's way to being IB authorized!
With the highest test scores in the area it is clearly the best elementary! I'm so glad my kids are here. The staff at Tomek is fabulous. And the parents are great too! :)
Tomek-Eastern has excellent teachers and support staff. Everyone is very caring and wants what is best for the students. They work very hard to give their students an excellent education.
Tomek has very caring teachers and support staff. They work closely with parents especially when a child has difficulties, whether with school work or other problems. The principal is fantastic. She will handle any problem immediately concerning kids, parents, or staff. She is awesome! I would not want my kids at any other school. The whole staff is great!
