Yes we do Hitler is in town. Or at least that is what the kids say when they get home. I can't wait till we get more new rules. Glad that parents who volunteer all the time get overlooked when it comes to class activities. Also glad that we are made to feel no longer welcome at the school.

Yeah, but her daddy was on the school board!! That makes it all ok and her perfectly qualified!! I know for a fact that there were more qualified applicants that applied for the assistant principal position that she first started at sullivan elemenary, but southwest school corperation is all about poitics and the good buddy system. Its not about the kids!!!!

I'm not too worried about the daddy being the school board president thing that speaks for itself. What concerns me is the whole lunch account fiasco with the cheese sandwiches. If I forget to send lunch money to school with my kid and they are singled out for it and ridiculed in front of their peers and made to eat a cheese sandwich and a carton of milk instead of receiving a tray and maybe a note sent home that will be the last day my kids go to school there. My respect to the parent this happened to for not having a total melt down. There are more things but this one will suffice for a start.

In defense of the policy in hand, generally a child is in the hole $10 before they are offered the sandwich. Phone calls are made, emails are sent. If a parent is not responsible enough to keep money on the child's account, answer a phone call, or email, then unfortunately the child suffers. I know sometimes the approach is not real pleasing, but honestly I've seen and heard these staff members try to make it good. Not a real fan or the not so child friendly CEO either but parents need to make sure we are plugged in with our kids before we start the blame game.

TRUE, this is what my sond school does as well. Its a program called harmony. We have had it that I know of 4 years.
MOM, I understand your point as well here!!! Kids do function better when they have eaten a meal and not a cheese sandwich. Our school doesnt allow us to have peanut butter due to a kid with alg to them.

My children's accounts have been under $0 before and I have never recieved an e-mail letter or phone call to tell me about it. I would send my kids to school with a lunch bucket but they do not want that because they have to sit all the way across the lunch room from their class at a separate table due to the allergy risk. Besides that point the child was supposed to be offered a milk a cheese sandwich a granola bar and a piece of fruit, not just a cheese sandwich and a milk!!!! It all boils down to control control control of absolutely everything and everyone. We did not have these problems two years ago. And I do live here and have for 30 plus years! This has never been a problem before...
