My child was enrolled in Park Place Elementary in the year 2002. The faculty of Park Place Elementary were struggling to 'make do' with the funds they had and did the very best that I've seen any school do. This was accomplished mostly by parent involvement. I believe that this school did great that year, and because of this accomplishment they were able to allocate funds to the new building that was completed in the beginning of the school year 2003.
