Dear Woolfolk Parents, The Woolfolk School has plenty of work for all to do. Time, resourses, skill, mentoring etc, etc. What a great way to make a difference in a childs life who really needs it. The parent participation out of an 100 is 10-15%--that's the weakest link. This number will improve with the dedicated parents that's already involved through resources like: "PTA", "Parents On The Move", "P-16 Community Engagement Councils", or simply just volunteering your time. I have children there--If we as parents unify togather as many but one voice to STOP--take assesment of our children, home enviironments--and the things that effect our kids behavior in class -- the school and teachers and #1 the parents will be more accountable, show respect and maintain better relations with parent, community and teacher relationships. So---calling all parents!!! calling all parents!!! your child, my child, someones child is below profiecient in reading, math, and science. We need help---our children are in failing and flunking out of school. So---calling all parents, calling all parents--lets get more "Invested" with our children so that they(children) will be more accountable in school.

This is a great school and it motivates students to do their best on test. Students are awarded for displaying good behavior. Teachers reinforce character education in their homeroom class. Certified teachers are in the classroom; furthermore, teachers are awarded for doing an excellent job with their students. Also, students are given the resources at the school if parents do not have the funding needed for his or her child. Woolfolk is in recovery from its pass and I would want my child to be in its reforming new change. It is a wonderful school and I enjoy going to work everyday.

Although I am not a parent, I do understand how a parent, employee, and onlooker could form this type of opinion of Woolfolk Middle School. It is obvious that there is a lot of work to be done, but what is not obvious is the diligent work, tenancity, patience, and care that it takes for any person to continue toiling in a fight that seems to have no avail. The evidence may not be apparent but, the chips are falling and the reward will be great someday.

This school is in need of some serious help. Disclipline is out of control, the children are beastly and uncooperative. Many changes are needed to make this school a successful learning environment. God help you if your child attends this school.
