My son goes to this school and to be honest it is not a very good school in the way that they have all these fundraiser's but I don't see where the school uses that money for the students or use it on the school. The teachers are good teachers and my son loves it there and the only problem is the money issue I would like to know where all that money goes to...and yes I know they have PAC meetings to talk about this but they have it at times when I also along with many other parents cannot attend like at 9:oo or 2:00 many of us have to work to support our family and I with working attend school
