  • This is a great school. Except they need to give a child a chance to eat their lunch. The lunch rooms aide yells in their faces. And all because one or two kids are talking. They should take them out of the lunch room. Why do others have to suffer. But, The aides. Ready don't have a right to yell at these children. And they sure be able to have time to eat their lunch. When we went to school that was the time to talk. I just hope someone talks to theses people. Because they don't have the right to be treated that way. They eat so, early . and buy cutting it short they go without eating all day it is not fair. And I can only hope that the new Principal will look into another way to handle this. I am not the only parent that feels this way. I am sure The aides and teachers eat their lunch.
    Thankyou
