View Ratings and Written Comments:
On the last day of the 2017 Writing Camp at River Islands, we asked all parents for anonymous ratings of their child's program. The tabulated responses are posted below.
Each survey form also included a small space for written comments. The Parent Comments for each grade-span have been transcribed below:
FROM GRADES K-1
My daughter LOVED the program. Loved the student/teacher ratio. Definitely would do this program again next year.
Raul enjoyed coming to school, and his patient teachers were amazing.
I just want to thank you for offering this program. Isabel has been very motivated to write more at home. :)
Writing Camp has been amazing. Teachers are caring, engaging, and helpful.
My daughter loved to tell me all about her day and the “word of the day” as well! She enjoyed the teachers and the curriculum. :)
Worth every penny. My kids loved it.
We especially enjoyed the writing camp – that made our morning wake-ups a cheer. :)
Thank you for investing such a great amount of all your time in planning engaging writing activities for these new learners. :)
Taralynn enjoyed the structure and fun of camp. Excellent length.
I would like to know how my child did in camp, so next time, if teachers can communicate with parents would be best.
My daughter loved writing camp!
FROM GRADES 2-3
Cordelia loved writing camp. Because she was excited, waking up in the morning was a breeze. :)
Thank you for the extensive unit on ants and bees. My child enjoyed it. :)
I found this camp to be helpful for my child. I hope to sign her up in the future.
Cairo was asked (by me) if he would come back next year. His response was, “Yes, if Mrs. Corona will be here.” So yes, I would enroll him again.
My kids loved it. They were excited to get up every morning.
FROM GRADES 4-6
Loved, loved, loved it! Venus was excited and that helped make morning wake-up a joy!
My daughter learned a lot. She feels that she can write longer pieces comfortably now.
We love GVWP!
Please start camp at 9:00 - 12:00.
— Coordinator's Response: Our teachers, too, would like to start at 9:00, but our site hosts ask us to start at 8:30 in order to reduce their air conditioning costs.
FROM GRADES 6-12
A great program every year!
My daughter really enjoyed the class.
I will strongly recommend this writing camp.
