Our first "Evening of Excellence" recently was a huge success; more than 500 parents came to school (in inclement weather) to celebrate their children's excellence and achievement. That should indicate something good is going on at Henry E.S. Reeves. I believe Mrs. Paschal is leading her staff in the right direction after only two years at this school. The beautiful new building cannot teach the children. The Miami-Dade County Public Schools-Edison Project partnership cannot teach the children. And the principal is not there to teach. So whether the principal is in or out of the building, it is my responsibility as a teacher to work with our children so they can achieve.
