I am not impressed at all with this school. Parent's are not regularly encouraged to participate. I was not even allowed to come in for my daughter's school "birthday party." I was instructed to leave cupcakes and supplies at the front desk and a teachers aide delivered it to the classroom. My daughter's preK teacher was fantastic. She was thorough in her reports and sent home monthly newsletters. Kindergarten has been a much different story. My daughter's teacher left on maternity leave and we weren't notified who was substituting for her until the day before. I wasn't informed that my daughter was having difficulties in class until December, during parent teacher conferences. There were no "holiday" activities mentioned, other than an in-class cookie swap. They regularly inform us of events (book fair, picture day, safe trick-or-treating) on short notice, often only one day in advance. It seems to be a very unwelcoming environment.
I have two young children that atteend this school and for the most part they try their best to help kids. The most important is what is taught but there are some behaviors that need to be dealt with. The older of the two has been bullied at school meanwhile nothing is done to the bullies. Bullies should be made an eample of.
Although our school system needs funding and help. I can't express how much the teachers care about the kids and try so hard to make a difference!!
My two school age children attend this school to my dismay. I had to remove them from the school bus because the children are out of control, and use terribly profane language at/around my children. I went to the principle and nothing was done, I went to the driver and her boss and nothing was done. I don't know what these people are thinking but they are not thinking about the children. Unruly, disrespectful children should be not be allowed to ride the bus. I never experienced this before and will be removing my children ASAP!
I have two children in Benjamin Cosor Elementary. I am concerned about the school lunches being served to the children and realize how nonnutritious it is. My kids come home with their lunch money still in their pockets because the food looks gross. At home we try to feed our kids organic foods and I do know how expensive that can be. People pay very high school taxes and deserve to have their children eating healthy.
