I have two daughters that go there (kg&1grades), and I have had two very serious incidents occur, last month and yesterday. Yesterday's being the most important my daughter tripped on a chair and blew her little vein in her hand, had I known that it was severe I would have been at school immediately; however the school nurse was not honest with me when description of the injury her exact description was that,"it was a small gash" i have been very upset and emotional because it was way more severe and the principal has shown no sign of concern in last month incident nor in yesterdays. Super intendant was notified in both incidents due to their severity, and today was first time the principal tried to get in contact with me. I am thankful to the very few teachers that i have come to know and one sectary and counselor. There are staff there who truly care and have the students well being and successful at heart, I feel the principal doesn't.
I am grateful to our principal, Andrea Edmonson, for being teacher driven and for being an amazing leader for our school. Her support has been more than valuable not only for the teacher, but for the staff and students as well. Thank you Andrea for making everyday at Del Norte, a blessing as well as instilling the love of teaching into your teachers.
Del Norte has had a change in leadership, but it is still an awesome school with great leadership. New activities and programs, including yearbook, Student Council, and the Ambassadors Club have been added to promote student involvement and leadership. An additional reading program has been implemented to assist children with fluency and comprehension. The teachers are fabulous, and truly care about the children. Del Norte is an awesome school, and I am looking forward to seeing more great things taking place in the future!
I would rate this school's Teachers as the most wonderful teachers with the kids. On the other hand the new Principle at the school has no people skills and is very rude to the parents as well as the kids that go there. If I were on the board she would not be there with my children.
