    Very disappointed that the city schools have decided to stop all holiday festivities. Student morale must be at an all time low.

    Snyder Park is a warm and friendly atmosphere that is very family friendly for our children to go to school at. The teachers and staff really take a personal approach with the students.

    This school has the best teachers I have seen in a long time. They are very receptive to parent volunteers and need them as the requirements on them and the staff has been increased steadily over the years. We are all a part of a child's education because education continues throughout our lifetime. However there is a lack of communication between the district and the staff which can cause frustration for the students parents and teachers as well. There are so many things that can be accomplished but it takes effort patience and the willingness to overcome. This school has the staff and teachers but needs the support of the principal and district to overcome them.

    Has a wonderful parent club but lacks in real teacher enthusiasm. Children learn but fun and excitement are truly misssing from the atmosphere. Guided babysitting comes to mind.

    I think that Synder Park is a wonderful school and the Staff are all wonderful pepole ad they are so willing and eager to help any of the students with any problems they have I think that is it one of the best grade schools in Springfield to get your child started and ready for middle school and high school. I strongly recomend Synder Park to all of the parents in Springfield getting ready to enroll they child into school. Joshua Mitchem
