My daughter goes to fairgrounds Elementry school and they never let the children out of school at the end of the day on time. This is a major pain, especially when people have to be other places.

I would totally agree with the comment "I am astonished at the way the prinicple controls this school." This school and principle need to be reviewed soon and changes need to be made!

I am astonished at the way the principle controls this school. More than that, I am really ashamed that the super intendent allows half of what goes on in that school to occur. The teacher's assistants, afterschool program assistants and lunchroom monitors have very little proffessionalism. I have witnessed these individuals talking innaproriately in the presence of children that attend this school. I am very sorry to say that my daughter attends this school. I teach my child to be respectful to one another and to treat people the way she would want to be treated. Yet, she observes the way these para-professionals behave with eachother and that is a shame.

We came to this school in the middle of the year and I am very unsatisfied with the kindergarten teacher and the system as a whole. There is very limited opportunities for the children in the kindergarten. The teacher, that my child had did not use technology as our society does today. The assistant is very unfriendly. I would not reccommend this school, for kindergarten, to anyone I know.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank the staff at fair grounds for being a caring place. I am proud that the school offered parents classes on advocating for their children. It is not often you find a public school that involved.
