Lafayette Elementary School Reviews
I visited my grandson's reading class in 1st grade where I spent 1-1/2 hrs. observing the four (4) classes. I was impressed with this reading team, including teachers,aides & volunteers. This is the way to insure that each child's reading abilities are taken into consideration. As a retired elementary reading specialist I can say without doubt that these little readers are in a wonderful & "Just Right" reading program. I'm so thankful that these teachers care enough to offer their very best for each student. Hats off to you girls--keep up the good work!
My grandson is a student in Mrs. McClure's K class. I am a retired elem. teacher (30 yrs) from OK. I was very impressed when I visited the K classroom. The warmness of the teacher to the students & parents was so apparent. My grandson loves school. I can only hope that the rest of the teaching staff is of a quality that I see in the K.
