    "As a teacher at this school I can assure you that we do not in any way discourage or treat parent volunteers poorly. The parent who was new here and wrote the negative review of our school brought much of the negative experiences upon herself. When you are new to a school and come in like a bulldozer trying to change everything all at once with no regard for the staff or parents that have been here for years, doing all they can to help our students, of course you will be met with confusion and uncertainty. Without getting too much into personal issues I can say that the teacher of this particular student was very accommodating and patient with this parent. However, it was never enough. When a parent feels they have the right to try and take over everything, they are overstepping boundaries. Our school is not a negative unwelcoming place....unless you act in a way that invites negativity."

    "The talent show spoken off earlier was wonderful. The teacher who volunteers her time, Mrs. Morales, deserves many, many kudos for the work she puts in working with these children. My family and I were treated to many wonderful acts...the first act was a little kindergartener who experienced microphone problems, but continued on quite professionally while waiting for a replacement mic and picked right up where she was supposed to be in the song. She finished, bowed to the audience, than ran off stage. She was adorable. Another cute act was song by a young boy and was well directed and choreographed. Later in the show another young man sang a sad song with much feeling. The emcee did a great job, even with the corny jokes (lol). It couldn't have been a better evening. Thanks go out to everyone involved in the show, with special credit to Mrs. Morales."

    "A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending the Powell Elementary talent show. The gym was absolutely overflowing with parents and students- parent holding signs, students cheering for every performer. The overall supportive and encouraging atmosphere was touching and very impressive. The stage was beautifully decorated and every act included costumes, dance moves, and often background singers and props. I learned that the show is put on each year by one exceptionally dedicated teacher, who volunteers months of rehearsing with these kids to make sure their moments of pride and glory are special. As I entered the auditorium, I had the chance to meet the new principal, who was standing in the doorway with her daughter greeting every guest. She displayed the sharp and professional attitude of a woman fit to lead a faculty and staff without sacrificing the cheerfulness and warmth of someone fit to lead children. Parent volunteers spent the night outside, chatting, laughing, and selling snacks to families. This community was so positive and welcoming. One student performed a song she wrote herself, entitled Powell Knows How to Party. And I have to say, I definitely agree."

    "This is the worst school I have ever been to. This is our first year here and we are all ready exploring other options. The staff is rude and unkind. My sons teacher is not just rude but very condescending, Ex, she refused to allow me to count box tops because "It's very complicated and a lot of work", this was after she complained that she had no help, she also does not want parent volunteers in her class. The Principal is new and does not display strong leadership qualities. The school appears to be run by the janitor, whom is hostile towards parents and students, and the other support staff. This is the only school I have ever been to that is not supportive of parent volunteers. Do not send your kids to this school."
