  • I have read the below statement and it really upset me that a mom would get on here and use such language, not much of a role model, no matter how upset you are, there is no reason for such language.
    If all of this was going on on the first day of school or when ever....maybe you should have been more of a hands on type mom and gone into the school to make sure your child was where he/she needed to be. If you were still having a problem maybe you should have a meeting with the 'new' teacher and the principal and get it fixed. I am a mom of 2 kids at this school and yes there are problems with some of the students and their behaviors and some of the teachers dont have much of a personality...but that is where you as a mom should take the extra step. Maybe if you were more of a hands on instead of waiting for the school to do it all you wouldn't be so upset. No matter what goes on at the school, you are still the mom and the first and number 1 teacher in that childs life.....despite the problems with some of the students, and that would be the parents fault...we love the school! I am a class room mom and go on as many of the field trips as possible and anything going on I am involved as a mom!!!
