    Since Mrs Warner and then Mr Van Hulzen left its been a terrrrible place. New administrator is not a good match at all for the neighborhood. My kids now go to Bud Carson but I didnt much care for the school the last year or so.

I'm gratefull with them.This doesn't mean all the teachers are great in first grade I requested her change because the teachers was not good. The principal paid attention to my letter and chenged her to a very good class.

    My experience with Kornblum is mixed. Last year I was a wittness to a bullies abuse of another student. When I stopped it and reported to the principal little action was taken. This will be my last year with Kornblum and I hope it will be a good one.
