There were some communication issues and bumps in the road along the way, but things seem to be much better now that this is cleared up. I felt I had to jump through quite a few hoops to truly reach an understanding with some of the educators involved with my son's education, but my situation is a bit unique. I wish I would have submitted my legal shared parenting plan to the school as soon as it had been ratified by the court. Not having it on file lead to some misunderstandings between some of the educators and my son's two households. Once I submitted all my legal documentation, everything immediately cleared up and now we are on the same page. (If you have a legal shared parenting plan, I definitely recommend submitting it for your child's records. I also recommend making the effort to communicate your situation clearly with anyone involved with your child's education.) I am grateful that my son is enjoying his time at Redbug. At the end of 1st grade, he enthusiastically asserted that Redbug Elementary School is the best school in the whole world! That's showing some school pride and spirit! :)
RB has been a blessing in our lives. We moved from Northern Virginia, and considered putting our son into a catholic school in the area. Worst mistake ever. We had to switch our son after a week. RB' teachers, staff and principal have been very helpful in every step of the process. Not sure why some parents complain about the homework, but it is fair. Some children know already how to read in Kindergarten, so the teachers have to put all students at the same level. Our teacher is very patient, she sends notes everyday in the planner. She is very sweet with her class, something that we didn't find at the catholic school. We are very happy with RB, and with the county. The teachers and counselors really make a big difference, and we are really grateful for that. Yes, the car line is kind of small for the size of the school, but it moves fast, and it is probably something that the county will have to oversee in the future. The front staff is very friendly and helpful.
This school has been the best for our kids. Very attentive and our child's progress has vastly improved from previous school attended. The extra programs really help expand experiences. Look forward to many years with the staff and teachers. Thank You =)
Very disorganized school in general. My daughter has attended rb for 4th and 5th grade. Everything about this school is dissapointing. Last month there was a bomb threat and they evacuated the school...only sent an email after the fact. If I call the front office for any reason, no one ever knows what's going on at all. Car rider line is ridiculous. Very unfriendly for families with kids not yet in school, as they arent allowed on school property.
