The elementary school is so over-crowded and the teachers have a lot of students. They need a new school. Most of the teachers seem like they do a good job. The lunchroom for the elementary is the gym/lunchroom and they bring in the food from the high school. My kids said the food is usually cold by the time they get it. They have so many students that they have to feed them in a certain amount of time which is about 5-9 minutes for them to eat. Most kids don't even get to finish their meal. If they could solve the overcrowding it would be better.
