I have an 8th grader in the TAG program. She started with the program in 3rd grade. We actuallyRead Moremo ved here from another district because they couldn't provide her with the extra challenge she needed. We are so grateful for the program. She has thrived. We like that she is with like minded peers. They can bounce ideas off each other and are able to go deeper into the subjects. We found in general education classes children's abilities differ more so than in a TAG classroom so there seemed to be some "down" time where some kids needed to go over the subject again and again (for the record I also have a general education student.) The teachers at East are great. I love their energy. If the student is having issues in any subjects there are multiple resources to get extra help if needed. Hopefully you will get other responses to help make this decision. Good luck!

Really? I got a notification from the city on March 12, 14, and 16th. You can opt in for City ofRead MoreP lymouth notification at: http://mi-plymouth.civicplus.com/list.asp?mode=del Although I didn't try to drive on Sunday during the race, the notification said to "use caution" and "obey race marshals". Not sure why you felt "stuck". I believe that "anyone else making money off of these Sunday races" would be a lot of local business owners who pay taxes to the city. I think that events like these are what makes Plymouth special and it is worth a little inconvenience upon occasion.

I have moved on from this, but we were truly stuck in our driveway for 3 hours with a steady stream Read Moreof runners down our street. I love the runs, love the festivals, love when others come to my town. But according to the race organizers (Kona) every race happens to come thru and go down my street. He was VERY nice and we had a good conversation but agreed that the race route should be varied. From 7:45-10:45 on Sunday (always the race day) there were 3 types (a walk, 2K and 5K?) and we can't even back out of the driveway because we would run over people. Don't tell me to move, like the other lady on here :) I am only looking for a break. I can't imagine that anyone would not care about going to church service or to work on Sunday. I have talked to Wes Graff, too, and hope that for the next run, they consider a shorter closure of any one street (one hour is fine) or a varied route.
