CRESTON — The creation this year of a first, second and third grade combination class at Creston Elementary has some parents concerned about the hectic schedule their children are encountering, but district administrators have assured them that the problem will be addressed.
Patrick Behr, parent of a kindergartener at Creston Elementary, says his son’s schedule has become disjointed and frustrating.
“My six-year-old’s schedule is as complicated as a high school student,” he said.
Behr says his son starts his day in home room, then goes to the school learning center for math lessons, goes back to home room and then to a different teacher for reading, comes back to home room again then goes to lunch, meets with a different teacher after lunch and then goes back to his home room before being dismissed.
