I want to say Thank You to Mr. Chuck Sinclair, the music teacher at North Forest Pines Elementary. He does an excellent job of teaching our children and organizing programs such as the Talent Show. He makes my son want to sing! Thank you for all you do, Mr. Sinclair!
I am very disappointed with new principle. She is not understanding with a parents needs when there is a situation out of control with a parents request for a student to be moved. But new students have priority over the students already there for tract. We took a huge lose when we lost Syreet Smith. She took time to listen and was understanding to help a parent with a situation. It was important for her to take part with class work, activities. It was more than a job to her. You never see the new principle.She is either in her office, meetings, or just gone.Never see her in each class to see how classes are taught. The car pool situation was not thought through at all. It doesn't make sense to send the kids to gym before going to the car pool. It adds a additional 10 minutes to get your child and get home. Actually it is foolish. The old way worked great. Hopefully someone with Wake County will look into this before this school looses its reputation and rating.
Since Syreeta Smith has left the school, it seems that the school has gone down hill. If something don't change the rating will go down. You never see the principal. She don't go around and go into the classrooms like Syreeta did. And this carpool thing is a joke. What was wrong with the way that it was?? I have to get my child out early one day a week to make it to piano lessons because if not she will be late. The principal is not understanding when you go to her with a problem. I never had problems with the teachers but their reputation will go down if the principal don't change.
Reading, Math and Vocabulary almost every night along with other activities...The Math homework sent home needs to be something taught in class and made sure the children understand before they are sent home to practice it. Much of the Blackline Masters in Math are challenging. A link needs to be provided with answers or teachers need to spend more time on the concept before moving ahead.
