Understanding this may be necessary, when parent's aren't familiar with the lesson plan or intended learning method it makes it very hard to assist. When seeking instruction/direction from teachers via email the consistent response has been to the tune of- "Just have them try their best, we went over it in class"- an unacceptable answer to a parent trying to assist in their child's education.
Practice what you preach. Uniforms need to be an "All or None" approach. It's simple Students wear uniforms = Teachers wear uniforms; outside of those guidelines integrity does not exist, honesty and fairness fall in line with this.
I don't like the uniforms,they're starting to get expensive and my daughter has a hard time finding them in the morning.Not only that,but in her fourth grade class there is one boy who the first day he came to the school said,"croch" and he also said"shut",he almost told her to shut up they need to do something.
I cannot believe the quality of Mt. Vernon. It blows my mind. The children educated in this establishment are not only well prepared for life, but have the corner stone of success laid out in front of them. Their uniform policy serves as a great equalizer. The teachers, especially those in the 4th grade team, care deeply about each child they teach. I am impressed with everything about this school!
This is the worse school my children have ever attended. Their self manager program is harmful to the not ideal student and demoralizing to their character. The Uh-oh program for looking at a rock on the program or not coming fast enough when a teacher called you is ridiculous. Maybe work on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives and trying to mold everyone to your perfect child.
Teachers are caring and good with the kids. They have a special class for children that need extra help and they use the SMART program. The children who act as crossing guards are cute and diligent about their job.
