Molalla Elementary is a great school! MES was nominated for an award for closing the achievement gap.... and state test scores just keep going up every year! A lot of good things are happening! Kids and teachers are happy!!! It's a good place to be!
My daughter was in 2nd grade last year and her teacher failed her completely. She decided that the kids were not going to have homework because she "Didn't want us confused". It's 2nd grade! Send home the instructions and we wouldn't. When I was reading with my daughter and she kept saying the wrong word, ie what for where, etc.., when she had learned that sight word before. I asked the teacher and she said reading is just prediction anyway. NOT in 2nd grade! The kids need to learn the proper words they are reading. All the other 2nd grade classes had homework I found out, not my daughter's. So they are behind all the other students now. The principal is a joke also. My daughter had major health problems last year where she missed 16 days of school all year. Half where they had me come and get her due to pain or illness. The principal was mad because all she cared about was the funding, not my child. The head secretary is pretty rude also but the other secretary truly cares about the children. I believe I am open enrolling my child to another school after what we went through last year. It was truly ridiculous!!
Great teachers who care and strong in academics. Needs more parental involvement but they try. Parent-Teacher group helps raise money and meets monthly. Needs to have regular art and pe, but district needs to pay for it so not the school's fault. The teachers are hard working and do what they can despite lack of funding in those areas.
