    The school needs to be updated the plumbing electric and the landscaping. The school needs the money for the building and its students. And maybe a real gym teacher!

    I went to this school as a child.My daughter also went to this school.Now my nephew is about to graduate this year.It's a good neighborhood school but i just don't like how no matter what the weather rain or freezing cold they won't allow the children to come in the school any earlier than 7 30.Some parents have to be to work at a certain time in the morning and can't waitoutside with their children.It wouldn't hurt to bring the few kids that are out there in for a couple of minutes until breakfast starts.They are in the heat aren't they.If it was their child would they want them to be freezing cold.
