How in the world did they become a school of excellence? If all it takes to win is spending hours of teacher's time filling out the forms-then they met that criteria. That school runs more fundraising and advertising events than any other in the county. They use their automated calling service, designed to alert parents of important school news or emergencies, as a call marketing tool promoting fundraiser after fundraiser, and private businesses in the community. I am tired of being interupted during my dinner time to learn about a southern living party somewhere! The parents run that school to the blessing of the principals. It is one big social gathering event. The teachers try to outdo each other on the biggest event that will make the parents happy or get the news station to come. What happened to curriculum folks?

The teachers are great, the principals are either rude to you or too busy to ever help you.

West Teays deserves the award. The principal and vice principal run a tight ship. You probably don't like it because the principal is a strict disciplinarian. The students are well-behaved and the teachers are dedicated, now that the tenured dregs went to the new school. The special ed kids, the kids from the housing project and the Japanese kids that don't speak English are all treated the same as the kids from Woodclyff Chase.

The only tight ship those ladies run is the loading dock out front when the yachts pull in for drop off in the morning! Give me a break!

West Teays is the best school around. PERIOD. You are just jealous. Val and Mary Beth are some of the most dedicated school employees you will find in Putnam Co. Where do you live Not Top Dog? Eleanor? Poca?

Parents get a grip. You only annoy the administrators. Ask the PTO president how friendly they are to her!

You guys are ridiculous. These teachers/administrators are obviously doing a great job. Just take a look at the No Child Left Behind mandated reporting of state test scores. This is the percentage of children that scored at or above MASTERY LEVEL.
West Teays Score: 83.9%
WV Average Score: 58.8%
I don't know about you, but it looks to me like they are doing a pretty good job. Those numbers say a lot. They may do fundraisers and other activities...but they OBVIOUSLY teach your children the curriculum and do a great job at that to get scores that good.

I can remember going to elementary school in Putnam County back in the 1980s (Scott Teays) and there wasn't any rich kids. All of these billion dollar neighborhoods didn't exist. And when these people moved in, yep, it all changed. I knew plenty of kids at West Teays and they weren't rich either. HOWEVER, look now!!!!!! The place is ran over by these kids now and their wild parents. All they know is how to text, text, text, text, talk and have sex. We are doomed as a country. It's sad to see teachers and principals cater only to the rich kids and leave the have nots in the back of the pack. Shame on these people. One day they will pay.

Look at the PTA/PTO president. She is the one that is doing all these fund raisers so everyone can afford to do what her kids want to do. Kick her out and that would probably be very helpful. I myself cant stand her and will not participate in PTA/PTO as long as she is part of it. I know several other mothers that feel the same way.

If you truly want changes made, then the people complaining need to run for these board positions next year. I personally don't agree with having so many fundraisers, especially one right after another. And to blame the kids is also ridiculous. They are only following what example is being shown at home. But to talk negative about the teaching is crossing the line. The scores don't lie. Apparently the teachers are doing something right.

Actually, the best school in the county and the state for that matter is Confidence. They don't have the money West Teays has but the have something more important. Parents that stay together, and help their kids with their homework. Think before you speak, you think the other side of the river is jealous of you? Think again... you have no room to talk.

I'm sure she would love your help. Why don't you try volunteering so you can speak your mind. Not helping the kids because you don't like someone isn't making anything better. Until you are willingto step up to the plate, I don't think you should have a voice. At least she is trying to help the school out. I don't have a child that goes there, nor do I know the PTO lady, but people like you need to be told just how it is. It is very hard to get anyone to help with anything. Instead of griping all the time, go help!!!! Then maybe you wouldn't need so many fundraisers if it were more of a team effort.

WTE PTO only has one fundraiser at the beginning of the year that they ask students to participate in. That's the savings cards. The rest of those fundraisers are done by school administration and have nothing to do with the PTO.

I personally don't see why PARENTS are arguing about who's elementary school is better. Why don't you take the time you're spending on Topix and help your children with their homework, or even better do something fun with them.
