Mrs. Reyes, for being an excellent teacher and open to communicate with parents. My child loves school and is excited to attend everyday, and I attribute that to Mrs. Reyes and how she handles her classroom.
I have not seen them give up on a student yet. Even with punishments, they get "yellow" days for when they misbehave, they are told they can earn it back by trying harder to make "good choices." That one bad day doesn't have to set the tone for the week. To never give up.
By holding students responsible for themselves even in kindergarten it helps them develop respect for themselves and their choices. They also teach them to treat others fairly and kindly, which I believe fosters respect for others.
Again, the students who display caring without being prompted get "good choice dollars" and they learn about how words and actions, even if they aren't intended to hurt, can sometimes hurt someone else's feelings and to always treat our friends the way we would like to be treated.
Mrs. Reyes is a fantastic teacher and has helped my child acclimate to his new school and kindergarten class. She is open for any questions and concerns which has also helped me. It has been a really positive experience leaving my child excited and looking forward to school everyday.
This school is awesome. My son attended here from K-3 and always an IEP, that has been top notch. My son made alot of progress through out years. The teachers and administration are really great. I really love this school. If i did not move out of the area, I would have let my son finish his elementary years there
