Why is leflore elementary not treated as equal as all the other. It is given less than the rest. It is the nastiest of all. I have seen teachers mopping and sweeping when they should be teaching. None of the teachers room are ever waxed. How can you be allowed to run a school and have students run around looking for tissue? I have also been in the lunch room on several occassion to find and be told their are no folks and spoons. Is this the excuse for selling snack in the lunch room doing the lunch hour which I may add went up after Christmas? We have three supers and one head teacher at Leflore elementary,but no folks,spoon paper and tissue. How is it that you can allow the librian to take some children on a trip and she not teaching library skill.
