My daughter attends Union Grove Elementary, she's in the first grade and has been going there since Pre-K. I would like to say, this school is, at best, below par for learning. In Pre-K I got a paper home with facts about whales and apparently whales have FLUBBER. I asked the teacher about it and apparently she had no idea it was supposed to be blubber and the mistake was no big deal Then in kindergarten my daughter was being bullied and all the principal had to say was "my kids had that teacher and never had a problem" And now, in first grade, a teacher wrote a nurse pass and couldn't spell stomach ache (stomuch ache) AND on a spelling test my daughter spelled open as opin and it was corrected to opan....by the teacher. For the record, my siblings went through the same school with similar problems, it s not just my child's experience. My sister actually sat through a presentation in class that involved soaking eggs in soda and brushing it off with and without toothpaste. Evidently the point was you don't need toothpaste to brush your teeth. What are these people teaching our children?? I am shocked and angry that this is the level of education my child is receiving.
