CHILDRENS COMMUNITY SCHOOL INC
February 16, 2011

Wow, what a living nightmare!! It started while I was out on the Georgetown square raising funds for the yearly fundraiser and a parent pulled me aside and asked me about the school. She explained to me that she would love to put children in school there because it is close to her home but the school would not let her read the 5 Great Lessons they would be teaching her children about creationism. I was shocked and called the director and asked if this was true. She told me this was in fact true because these lessons were "protected". "So you are not going to let me see what you are going to teach my child about creationism?" The answer was," no" they are protected." Protected?

We continued taking our child to this school until one night at a board meeting(I was there supporting a family that had been kicked out of school out of the blue) a man turned to me and threaten me by making a throat slashing gesture and said, "F*** Y**!" He continued you stare at me with a evil stare. I had never seen this man before. The teacher that was sitting next to me raised her hand and said to the board, "hey this man just made this gesture to a parent and cursed at her." The board acted as if nothing had happened. That was curious. Come to find out the man is the assistant director's husband at the school. There had been a breech of confidentially made by the school's director. She accused me of making a CPS report on this parent's child for inappropriate behavior with other children. The director admitted in writing to me, without knowing who called CPS, that she told the office staff and families at the school that I had called CPS.

Either way the behavior that was tolerated at this school towards me by this man was unacceptable, in my opinion. Furthermore, a police report was filed on this incident and the charges were not pursued even though the man went to the police department at told them he did threaten me but only because he wanted me to "shut up".

Well, it is curious to me that an assistant district attorney in Georgetown happens to also be the board president of this school. The police came to my house to warn me of this man because he did say he came to this meeting to threaten me. Funny the courts didn't pursue something that the police department found so concerning to drive to my house and warn me about. Curious if you ask me or just plain corrupt!

And the very next morning after this happen the director walked up to the teacher and told her not to worry because that was not aimed towards her. hmmmmm? WOW!!! Well, who was it aimed towards? And does that make it acceptable? I pulled my daughter out of the school.

I have tried to talk to the director of the school about this and she told me she didn't see any value in meeting with me. My daughter was heart broken about leaving her friends and teachers and you don't see any value in meeting with me after your staff's husband threaten me at a board meeting?

This school is not about the children. They ask parents to leave the school without any regard of how it will effect the children and they had no concern that my child was having nightmares about changing schools. And I have made attempts to speak with them. They have never made an attempt to make things right. Thousands of dollars they made from us and not even an apology?

If you do go this school please be aware that a core group of parent's run this school. And now you MUST sign the handbook stating you may be kicked out for any reason no questions asked as many parent's have experienced. In other words if we don't like you then you make just be asked to leave. And we don't care how this will effect your child!!

Beware of this what appears to be perfect environment. There is a dark underlying group of people that run this school.

The Great!
