Lunchtime for students
The last kids in each class lunch line barely have enough time to sit down and eat before the staff are dismissing them. 10 minutes to eat is not enough time.
The students here exhibit great needs emotionally, behaviorally, and academically. Smaller class size would help meet the needs of these students. If we are doing what is best for all students, then we need to be able to give them the services they require.
More social workers needed
I feel that we would all greatly benefit from another social worker who can help with not only behavior, but the increasingly high mental health needs that we are seeing in the classroom. Students are suffering from severe stress at home and are acting out at school where we are ill equipped.
We need more technology in the building. Other teachers in the district have been given Promethean boards, document cameras and projectors through the PTA or other donations. Shouldn't these items of technology be provided through the district? Shouldn't all students be given the same opportunity
More specifically, the lack of teachers. I know that teachers in general aren't plentiful. My child is in 5th grade this year. Since the beginning of 3rd grade, there have been two teachers assigned. Then a third is added. If the enrollment numbers are the same, why not add more rooms/teachers.
