    "My neice just moved here from New Jersey and put her 5 year old daughter in kindergarten. She is a sweet and well behaved little girl. She is hit over and over and has been kicked, grabbed by an aide in the cafeteria for getting up to empty her trash. Her arm and thigh have been squeezed by other children. She has been punched in the face and has been left behind in the bathroom during an actual "fire" at that school. We have had many meetings with the teacher, assistant principals and the principal. We have gone to the AISD and complained about them. The principal keeps telling us each time that "that the problem is being handled". Then three days later, she is being hit again!!! The kids are out of control here and there is clearly no discipline going on. These bullies need to be put out of the school. We will keep making all the noise and trouble that we can about this school. We will be attending school board meetings in the future in order to bring our complaints against this principal and the lack of concern for the safety of a little innocent 5 year old girl. We have pulled her out of that school and insisted that the AISD send her to another school."

    "60 people took valuable time out of their day on June 23, 2011 to show their support for Roquemore Elementary's new playground vision, to meet the new Principal, Ms. DuPont and the new Asst. Principal, Ms. Harry. The current Asst. Principal, Ms. Brooks was present. Ernie Horn from Score a Goal in the Classroom has taken the lead fund raising task to make sure the Roquemore kids have playground equipment at their school with they arrive for the fall semester. Please send your tax-deductible contribution to Score a Goal in the Classroom, Attn: Ernie Horn, 819 Penn St, Fort Worth, TX 76102-3413. The fund goal is $50,000...each dollar helps!"

    "Although this school has not yet been ranked as a "recognized" school, I believe we will see a big change next year. With more community involvement, as demonstrated by 60 people showing up at a meeting at the school recently, and the district focusing a great deal of attention on this school, I feel confident we will begin to see a positive change in student performance. RIght now we need for the community to come together and help in providing the necessary funding for some playground equipment for 2nd through 6th grade children."

    "My daughter, who is a single mother, working fulltime and attending college has just moved intothis area and we are excited that her daughter will be in a school where she is not 1 of 4 white children - since she is taking a financial jump by obtainingher own apartment sot that her child will be in a better school system, and I as the grandmother will be driving from Fort Worth on days when the mother is not only working 8 hours a day but then attending night classes. Then I read where Katie McGowan, a parent states " The majority of the children are from lower income families and tend to lack discipline". Unfortunately because of being a single parent I guess my daughter falls into that group - I resent that statement. All apples are not red Ms. McGowan."

    "Roquemore offers no homeowners, no PTA, & no accolades for teachers. Constant student turnover demands staff work 115% harder. Teachers stay late, come early, & pray together. This school is not for sissies. If you work here, it's because you have a special calling & a unique expertise with classroom management. The principal is compassionate.The AP, teachers, nurse, counselor, specials team,office & aids are outstanding educators who love the kids!"
