I am a Woodside parent but I have not been at the last two either. I usually check in with the other ladies to see what I missed. I can try and answer any questions.

thanks for the offer of answering any questions. I am going to try to make it to the next one Tuesday, although i really don't care to see the lovely principal. FYI...i made 3 formal complaints concerning her directly to the Super. prior to christmas vacation. I also emailed him through the school website mid january...he still has not gotten back with me concering my children. Unbelievable.

I don't blame you. I wrote her a letter directly and put in the wording that this is a formal written notice that I want something done. It took her two weeks to call me back and had to nerve to tell me she was out of the district. I was like, twat, I live in the neighborhood and saw your car at the school, who are you trying to lie to? The Super isn't here half the time, frankly, I would write the letter to the super and copy the board. At least two of them on there will listen to you.

That's a HUGE problem I have with her...communication. That's a good idea. I was going to call the super, or his secretary rather, and see what the hell is going on with my complaints. She's on probation because she's new, the teachers cannot stand her, and there is no freaking control over the kids. It's rediculous. No wonder they beefed up security at the school with as many irate parents that there are, ya know? Still debating on going to the PTA Tues. Not sure if i wanna see her face or put up with her stupid not-funny-at-all jokes.

That is my biggest complaint, there is no control over the kids. I have had to complain at the school numerous times because children were physically harming my child and no one was doing anything because the other child claimed it was an accident and she was sorry. Are you kidding me? After doing it every day no one noticed that it was being done on purpose!

Good morning! I just had to respectfully respond to your comment about Austintown being turned into the "junior YCS". I'm a parent of three YCS students. All of them are intelligent, talented students who are an asset to their district. My daughter has attained one award after another and is a high honors student. My son is a great athlete with a great attitude who strives to do his best regardless of what others may be doing. I understand the last couple of years have been rough for our district, but, honestly, I'm tired of our students getting "dumped on" by so many people. There are some great kids in the YCSD. I know, because my husband and I have been very active in supporting a lot of them. The surrounding school districts don't get a lot of bad publicity, but unfortunately, it's not because there's not a lot of bad stuff going on. I believe it's more due to a lot of "covering up" of all this "stuff". My son recently attended drivers training. His instructor had all the students there anonymously write down any drug they had personally witnessed someone doing. The few students from the YCSD's list was very limited! I had to explain to my son some of the things he heard listed on the other student's list! He had never even heard of them! I have a nephew who attends a local parochial school, and I can't believe the stories he tells about parties that they have! Anyway, I would just like for everyone to take a look in the mirror before taking another "stab" at our students. There are some GOOD kids in our district, and my husband and I are determined to make sure the city sees this! Thanks, and God Bless!
