Im not saying names because we are figuring out how to handle this situation..... My kids have gone to grass lake elementary for about 4 years now. For 2 years my younger son had a horrible bully. The school finally stopped it, but it took almost 2 years.. But Both of my boys have never been in trouble for anything at school until this year when my older son got this teacher. My older son (6th grade) is the sweetest little boy and he has never had a problem until now. His teacher this year makes him cry almost daily. I have other family members at this school also, and one of my family members is in this teachers class also. The teacher spends half the day with my sons class, and half The day with my other family members class. We have been told by many students that This teacher talks badly about one class to another class and vise versa.. " Here's an Example" ....... The teacher will tell my sons class that they did an amazing job at something, and Then when the classes switch he tells the other class that my sons class failed miserably!! This teacher talks badly about students to other students and that is not ok. There are many more issues but its too much to write. So now my child comes home crying all the time, and is begging me to let him stay home from school. Which he has never done until this year. My other family member crys all the time now too. I loved this school until this year. Bullying students and talking badly about students to other students is NOT OK!!!!!!

My experience with Grass Lake Elementary School in the 2013 / 2014 school year was great. My kindergartener thrived under the direction of the teachers, and he enjoyed every experience he had throughout the year. I have had positive experiences all around with the teaching staff and on a volunteer basis. The school is smaller and this seems to cause the class sizes to be more manageable. As a working mother, I can not regularly volunteer, but there are many parents that do, and I try to whenever I am able to. I am so happy that both of my children are able to attend Grass Lake Elementary School.

Was a great school where you felt invited as a parent to volunteer or be a part of the school. All changed when Dan Irvine took over as Principle Sept 2013. This man does not know how to work with parents and makes you feel like your an intruder walking into the building! he has "sterilized " the environment and has chased several great parent volunteers out. He is a dishonest rude man whose only agenda is to make sure you know he is the man in charge! I say Boo to you to for what you have done to this once wonderful community!

Two of my kids are now at Grass Lake and have done wonderfully there. Most of their teachers were excellent...very involved and interested in each child. The parents and principal alike are very involved in many aspects of regular school life, such as the PTA, the Art program, music, PE and before and afterschool clubs. Keep up the good work!

Grasslake was a WONDERFUL school. My sister and I both went there. They had a nice balance of everything, PE, music classes (where you sang, or played smaller instruments with the beat of the music, and even got some keyboard instructions), minor computer classes (where you learnt to type with homerow) and plenty more activities. They had a Field day at the end of the year where everyone got to participate in friendly sports, and an event that let everyone recieve a prompt, and write a song, write a story, or draw a picture about it. One of the 'Suddenly you turn around and...' and that was where our imaginations soared. I'd give anything to be back in that school with friendly teachers and a warm smile each day. Go Gators!

This is a great school. Its a small class setting so the kids get more attention and one-on-one time with the teachers.
