Hazeldale Elementary School 3

While the PTO, teaching and office staff are very friendly and supportive, I have been disappointed in the Principal's recess and lunch policy here. With this being the first year (2015-2016) of full-day Kindergarten, the year started off with these littlest learners (one of which was our daughter) getting three recesses a day, which I was very happy about! However, by October, all Kindergarteners were only being allowed ONE, 20-minute, outdoor recess (the parents were never notified of this change) regularly and it has been this way since. Apparently the kindergarten teachers were not meeting their "instructional minutes" so recesses had to be cut. School starts at 8:30 and Kindergarteners do not go to lunch until 11, and they have ZERO outdoor recess breaks during this time frame. The kiddos NEED to go potty and run around without feeling bad about needing to do so - they are 5 and 6 years old! In the afternoon, they get "indoor" recess for about 10 minutes when they can eat their snack, but this can hardly be considered an acceptable "recess." I see the one-recess policy as a violation of elementary school children's rights and needs as well as BSD "Wellness Policy." By law, when adults who work more than 6 hours a day get more meal periods and breaks (50-60 minutes) than Kindergarteners, something is REALLY WRONG! :(

I m shocked to see a rating of 8. Both my kids attended this school (my son for his entire elementary school "career" and my daughter only for kindergarten). They had between 28-39 kids per class (yes, my son had 39 kids his 3rd grade year), ONLY "1/2 day" (2hrs 25min) kindergarten was an option, they didn't have a nurse (my son had a broken hand thru an entire school day with no one calling us), and PE maybe once a week. When we moved to Texas, both my kids were appallingly behind and required tutoring to get caught up to the rest of the kids in their new schools. Shame on Beaverton ISD for having such low standards. An 8, I would give it a 2.

The people who I observed as "Shining Stars" at Hazeldale would be the School Secretary, Karen, the Principal's Secretary, Lisa, the School Counselor, Lori, the School Librarian, Lisa, the School Custodian, Irma, and the school PTO President, Amber, and Vice President, Anne. Each of these ladies has been warm, welcoming and supportive and I appreciate their dedicated work on behalf of my daughter!

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

I know there are some good and great teachers here, however, due to the performance pressure through rigorous testing, I think some teacher's effectiveness gets lost in the intensity of the daily workload.

Amount of homework: Just right

I like the homework for Kindergarteners! It is simply and appropriate because it is based in "real life" work. I do not know about the homework in other grades but any homework that takes a child more than 30 minutes to do each night is TOO MUCH!

Develops grit: Neutral

I know the teachers are trained to teach the students how to employ good "stamina," however I am not sure this is entirely appropriate for Kindergarteners when "stamina" also means "you must be able do school work for 1-2 hours at a time with no recess breaks."

This school has a diverse culture, and I have seen evidence of its effort to promote fairness, acceptance, and value diversity.

This school does promote character development through a program that encourages Compassion, Caring and Empathy, and teachers are encouraged to recognize students for their good behaviors/actions by awarding them with "Gotchas!"

This school does put an emphasis on character development though a program that teaches them about how to be Caring, Honest and Fair.

All of the kids love their teachers. The teachers love the students and come to work happy because the principle makes it a fun, happy place to work. When the teachers are happy, they do so much more to focus on helping the students. They reward properly but are stern.
