              The principal and the teachers here are just trying to get you child to the next school. There is no long term buy in for your kids. They are only here for 3 years. The teachers do not care if your child cannot read, they will lie about test results and say the child is reading at grade level when the child is not. They will try to not have you get an IEP and will never suggest you get you child tested because then MCPS would have to pay for it. They will not teach your child to read, they leave that up to the parents.

              There is no regular communication with the parents from the school. Teachers can use apps to let you know what they did in class but will not call you if your child is having difficulties.

            3. After I originally left a comment I appear
              to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
              and from now on every time a comment is added I receive
              4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there
              is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
              Thanks a lot!

            4. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with
              the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify
              it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a
              great blog like this one these days.

            5. You are so awesome! I do not think I’ve truly read something
              like this before. So nice to discover somebody with unique thoughts on this subject matter.

              Really.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that is
              needed on the internet, someone with some originality!

            6. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
              I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

              Thank you

            7. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and
              wished to mention that I’ve truly loved browsing your blog posts.
              In any case I will be subscribing to your rss
              feed and I am hoping you write once more soon!

            8. Great beat ! I wish to apprentice at the same time as you amend
              your site, how could i subscribe for a weblog site?
              The account aided me a applicable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted
              of this your broadcast offered vibrant clear concept

            9. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
              book in it or something. I think that you can do with some
              pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
              A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

            10. I think what you said made a lot of sense. However, what about
              this? suppose you were to create a awesome headline? I am
              not saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added a post
              title that makes people desire more? I mean Takoma Park
              ES – MC School Reviews is a little boring. You might
              peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to grab people
              to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or
              two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a
              little bit more interesting.

              your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
              got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

              Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
              Maybe you could space it out better?

            42. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha
              plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same

            43. Hi there, There’s no doubt that your site could be having web browser
              compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at
              your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some
              overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!

              Other than that, wonderful blog!
