Since Ms. Box has come to the school it seems like it has blossomed and things have improved greatly. As a parent I am more involved with my children's education and they have started haveing at least 2 feild trips a year comapred to none when my children first started. I am very impressed with the change and I am glad we have Ms. Box.
I feel like the teachers treat my kids really well and both of my children are doing well. If their is a child with learning problems they take it very seriously and do everything they can to help that child. They encourage parent involvement and their feild trips have doubled since last year. My kids have blossomed since going to Carpenter.
I appreciate the level of commitment to the p.e. program at Carpenter. Mrs. Cloud provides a positive physical environment for the students to feel successful. The music program under Mrs. Cynthia Perry is tremendous and my child enjoys choir each and every day. Mrs. Box has brought innovative ideas and has made our school great..
We moved to DP because of the 'awesome' schools. I was really looking forward to Kindergarten w/my son, but sadly it was anything but fun. He used to come home upset a lot because his teacher would yell at the whole class. She very rarely took them outside to play, & used mosquitos as and excuse. That's supposed to be the fun part of school. The teacher sent home more homework than she should have, my neighbor was in kindergarten at Carpenter also and had half the amount of homework as my son. I was basically homeschooling him. It was also very hard for parent's to get involved. It was not encouraged at all, except for homework. We were invited to 2 events; square dance & graduation. We have now moved out of state & my daughter is in Kindergarten, I now realize how bad it was for my son!
