The FCAT scores are out. CAE will be one of the lowest scoring schools. My family feels that we need a new set of administrators in our school. They should all be gone, except for the teachers who work so hard to teach our students. When we are always close to the bottom in the county, someone should figure out that the changes need to start at the TOP. Our students deserve it!
Are principals an exception to the rules? Are they allowed to be abusive in the workplace, where it affects children, staff, and the community? The principals running the schools should be held accountable for their actions, just like everyone else.
Memorial Day is Monday, May 28th. I see that the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3227 (VFW 3227) is inviting the public to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony at Mt. Peace Cemetery located at 755 E. 10th St. in St. Cloud.
Unless a member of your family is serving or has served in our Armed Forces or you’re a history buff – as am I – you might be forgetful of the fact that the United States has been engaged in combat operations for more than eleven years. No matter how you feel about the War, everyone must recognize the fact that with service come sacrifices. At Memorial Day, we are reminded of those who have given their lives for our freedom.
But what’s often overlooked is the sacrifice of the families of servicemen and servicewomen. And the handicaps that many members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and National Reserves bring back home.
Please take a few moments while engaged in the parties and shopping to remember the reason for Memorial Day?
Mother’s Day is Sunday May 13th, this year. Now almost everyone will agree that everyday should be Mother’s Day.
But seeing as how it has been declared that the second Sunday in May is Mother’s Day, I’ll just say, “Happy Mother’s Day” and encourage those who have their Mom’s still alive to reach out and let their Mothers know that they did a pretty good job!
After all, you’re still alive – you are reading this - and doing at least as good as everyone else in your circle of friends and family. So, your Mom deserves a “Hello”, “Shout Out” or maybe an “Atta-girl”.
I’ll bet that you know that the busiest day for restaurants is Mother’s Day. But did you know that many Moms do not want to go out on that day?
Since the “economy” hasn’t picked up for many, maybe a dinner or luncheon at your home might be a grand idea. Remember that the way to Mom’s heart may well be her stomach… It worked for Dad so why not Mom too!
