  • I agree with the lunch comment but also there needs to be more time allotted for lunch. I tried to eat with my child and inhaled my food in the time allotted. No wonder my kids come home hungry all the time. The teachers are excellent! I feel that the teachers love their jobs and love the students. I would love to volunteer more in the school but have found it hard to get invited into the school to help out. I have yet to meet the (...). She does not seem very compassionate and does not seem to "like" her job. I feel that it is important for the (...) to connect with the students and the parents to improve the overall atmosphere of the school. My children have learned a ton at Riverglades. It is a good school. It just needs a few improvements before becoming and excellent school.
