CHEERS TO: Wal-Mart for a $1000 grant to the Churubusco Middle and High School Library. This generous donation will go a long way towards helping me update the science sources in the school library, ensuring that students have up-to-date information about health, medicine, technology, and other science topics. Thanks.

WHATABOUT: Attending the schools’ meeting on the “reconfiguration” of the middle and elementary schools on Tuesday, November 24 at 7 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The administration is considering moving the sixth grade back to elementary. This will have an effect on students in all grades due to not only transplanting the sixth grade to another area (that is already in use), but the movement of classes, computers and staff throughout the entire school. I am anxious to hear from administration and staff on the pros and cons of this plan, how it will affect the students and staff, as well as how much it will cost. Please show your support for Smith-Green students and staff at this important meeting.

JEERS TO: Those that are focusing on the negatives of the bent flag poles coming up to Veterans Day. I think it is better to fly a flag on a bent pole, or fly a tattered one than not fly one at all! I want to focus my thanks to the veterans that have served so our country can enjoy the freedom that we graciously have.  Thank you to the men and women who have served and are serving. I salute you all!
