Paumanok Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
I have to agree with the reviewer that wrote about the PTA. The PTA had one meeting in the evening last year and essentially that was to collect the annual membership fees. Every meeting after that was held in the mornings at 9:30. It appears to be like that for all the schools in the Half Hollow District. The same people are involved every year, and you only hear from them when they need money or fund raising. While I admire parents who make the sacrifice to stay home, they are not respecting of working parents and single mothers who MUST work. As for new students and parents socialization, it's extremely clingy. The education and teachers involvement iare like none other. I will rate involvement a 10. I can't rate the PTA here, unfortunately because it would be unfair to the school.
THIS SCHOOL IS OKAY . SEEM TO BE A LACK OF COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS . A MILLION AND ONE PTA SHEETS WEEKLY . IF YOUR NOT PART OF THE PTA YOU CAN FORGET IT YOU'LL BE LOST STRAIGHT OUT THE LOOP TREATED LIKE AND OUTSIDER ...MRS.KENDRA COOPER TAKING YOU OR YOUR KID SIDE THAT GOES FOR MR. B THATS A JOKE! SO FAR TEACHERS ARE GREAT REST OF THE STAFF DOESNT SEEM TO PAY TOO MUCH ATTENTION TO THE KIDS I HAD A FEW INCIDENTS HAPPEN AND THIS WAS MY CHILDREN 1ST YEAR IN THE SCHOOL . I AM A PARENT WHO MOVED TO THIS AREA FOR THE SCHOOLS . BUT STAFF ACTIONS ARE MAKING ME WONDER IF I MADE THE RIGHT MOVE .BY FAR IM NOT IMPRESSED BY THIS SCHOOL .
I believe Paumanok is an awesome school! The Principal sets the wonderful tone of the building-which is warm and inviting. My children have some unbelievable teachers who are both caring and nurturing, and who take the time to make sure my child is learning. I am so glad my children will have such a strong educational foundation.
Very cliquey and their isn't nearly enough communication with parents unless they are wanting money for the PTA. I'm disappointed with their lack of making new parents/students feel welcome. We loved our teacher last year. This year we are waiting to see how it goes but so far so good. I have to say only a 3 because I feel like I know so little about the school and what it offers because of the lack of involvement and info being given out. New playground is a huge plus!
The school targets children and uses suspensions as a means to an end. As working parents this does not help in school behavioral issues especially at the elementary level. There also seems to be lack of supervision for these young children and I agree there is not enough communication about classroom/school activities and the parents unless you can by part of the Click.
