First of all, I am sick of all the comments about how many teachers left last year. Maybe you should bother to find out why the Teachers left and not assume it had anything to do with Mrs. Lyle. I happen to know that some left due to finding a job closer to where they live since gas is $4.00/gal. Another one left because he had an opportunity to advance to the next level of being a principal. The other one left because she could not run the school and I heard many of you complain that you wanted her fired after losing her temper in the classroom. So what is your problem people. Why don't you try involving yourself in what goes on in your child's classroom and offer your help. A school is only as successful with parents supporting the staff not tearing them down. LeGrande has made many changes that were necessary! Our CATS scores are #2 in the district and our middle school is ranked in the top ten in the STATE!!!!!!!! I don't care what you think about Jerri Lyle I stand behind what ever she thinks is best for our kids!!!!!!!!

well just as you have your oppinion we have ours and i personaly do not like Mrs. Lyle at all ahe has been rude to me on numrous ocasions and i have seen her rude to her students and what makes you think that she is the only one who causes the test scores to be so good I think we need to be looking at the wonderful teachers and parents that we have envolved but i have heard more htan one person complain about her some knew her only from school and some knew her on a more personal level

Hey IMAO- No! I am not a Denton or Meador. If you don't want to participate with PTO that is your loss and your childs. All the petty BS needs to end. Grow up be adults and show your children how to be a leader and not a follower. Keeping this attitude toward your childs school is not doing anyone any good. Many Many Many things that your children enjoy at Legrande are provided by PTO. If we all sat back and complained like you instead of doing something for our kids LeGrande would still be last in the county. Do you just like to complain if you don't like LeGrande why do you stay??????????

I did not say Ms. Lyle was the only reason for the test scores to go up. However, she is the leader and has implemented some good policies that you can thank the SBDM parents and teachers for. I said a school can only be successfull if we are supporting the staff instead of trying to tear them down. We have some GREAT Teachers no doubt!!!!!!

Sorry! I didn't aim to start a teacher bashing by asking why we had new ones,it's just that there had been no explanation at the start of school as to why we had nearly all new teachers? As you should have read in my earlier post I hated to see some of them go.I should have known better than to ask a question like that on here!My bad!p.s I don't spend as much time at school like some of the other parents get to but when I do go Mrs.Lyle usually speaks to me and anytime I have seen her get on to any child they are usually doing something they shouldn't be doing in the first place.My kids included!

quite honestly LeGrande would be your best bet. LeGrande doesn't have a criminal record a mile long. Kids have been shot and killed there and weapons has been found on kids.

What kids have been shot and killed at Caverna Elementary????? For that matter the HS or MS? This is 2008, almost 09. Why r u still raising the big head of ugly racism? I have subbed at schools in Hart and Caverna, and believe me the kids are no different at either school. You have good, great, and some that wouldn't fit in anywhere in any school system. There are no bad kids, just kids that do what they have learned from home. Children are not born racist, or criminals. they learn this behavior from the people they are around the most. Later in life they often make terrible choices on friends and again learn bad behavior. Let's get all the facts straight before we accuse one school or another of having "Killings" at their school.

I'm just wondering if the lady that started this pole ever made a decision as to which school to send her children to or did everyone scare her off and she decided to continue home schooling them?

well my friend....let me say this...i have tried going to the pto meetings, and if DENTON don't like what you got to say then she acts like a smart azz toward you and makes you feel about 2 feet tall!!! in order to keep the school open some of US PARENTS have to work and pay our taxes and can't be at every PTO MEETING or at school sucking up to ppl!! meador's kids treat my kids awful!!! and i have had other kids tell me how they treat them. they KNOW they can do whatever they want and get by with it. AND NO I WON'T PULL MY KIDS OUT BECAUSE THEY HAVE AS MUCH RIGHT THERE AS THE DENTON AND MEADOR KIDS!!! BUT WHO ALWAYS GETS THE BEST ALL AROUND AWARD??? THE KIDS WHO HAVE PARENTS THAT DO NOTHING BUT SUCK UP TO THE IMPORTANT PPL AT LEGRANDE!! i have even had one of my cildren make comments about how STUCK UP DENTON acts when she is walking around LEGRANDE LIKE SHE OWNS THE PLACE. you can walk right past her knowing damn. well she kknows who you are and don't SPEAK. how can the kids at our school have postive when they see so much NEGATIVE.. EVEN THE CHILDREN NOTICE THINGS LIKE THIS!!! we only got a couple more years left and then we will be out. but i feel sorry for the ones who have kids behind us!

Let's be honest, gas is high, but if you speak with "those gentlemen" that left for that "supposed" reason, you'll hear differently from them both.

Well my friend.....my best advice to you is to go straight to Dodgie Meador if you have a problem with his kids instead of bashing him on topix. GROW UP!!! The Meador kids have always been respectful to me and my family. Quite hiding behind a nickname and tearing down the school that you are pretending to support. By the way... no need to feel sorry for anyone behind you. We are probably going to be even more successful at LeGrande when we finally get rid of people with attitudes like yours wanting to air your dirty laundry on topix. Same for Ms. Denton I'm sure she had rather you grow some balls and say it to her face instead of on a community forum. She puts in alot of hours for PTO to get things done that everyone raises their hand and says yeah lets do it for the kids but no one is there to do it but her. And yeah she works and pays her taxes too just like the rest of us!
Like I said before either SHUT UP AND SUPPORT THE SCHOOL OR GET OUT!

Say what you want to about the Meadors and the Denton's since all of you are hiding behind nicknames. The Denton and Meador kids dont get away with things like everyone on here is making out like. I know for a fact they get into trouble and deciplined just like the rest of the kids, because mine got in trouble with them. And Dodgie probably gets attention from everyone because he bust his ass at that school and donates lots of his time to make things work,(It is a rual school you know). I have seen him pay for things out of his own pocket, as the ones that are actually involved have. As far as Angela making some people feel 2 foot high, Im sure she does, probably because you come to PTO to bitch about way things are, but you dont have, or wanna be part of the solution. Show up with a complaint and solution since you have better ideas. I have been to the PTO meetings and seen 25 people volunteer to help with things. When it comes time there is always the same poeple show up to help. And they can usually be counted on 1 hand. So if you think the ones on that hand are special at that school, then hell yes we are. Cause we dont just blow smoke out out tails we try to do something!!! And I belive I speak for Dodgie and Mike when I say, dont call names and spread rumors on topix, our phone numbers are in the book!!!!!

caverna also has the highest grading scale out of hart and barren schools it takes a 94 to make an a at caverna the other to schools a 90 is an a excellent small school .
That is not good either, you know why? because they don't teach the kids well enough to have that high of a grading scale.

Hey, GET REAL, that's because there academic level's are way lower than other school's, so that's why they are succeeding so well. Try putting them in Hart or Barren.

Dodgie steals and he used to try to slip his dad that stayed in jail a knife in a cake to get out of jail. Watch him, he steals big time. I wouldn't put it past him if he hadn't killed someone. BEWARE He mooches off his daddy in law and helps beat up his daddy in law's x wife

i bet if you took these "complaints" directly to the school, or spent the time and engergy you spend on the computer trying to make a difference by volunteering your time rather than hiding behind a computer and letting a nickname do your dirty work; any school, including legrande, would become a better place to be. as for this whole meador/denton issue, i personally have never seen either mistreat anyone or turn down someone who genuinely wanted to help. it is very frustrating to know that there are people out there who would rather talk about people behind their backs than try to actually settle a problem.
