This is another event that I have organized with Pat Lewinski for three years now. I volunteer many hours for the Libbey Learning Community.....Tyler has no benefits for either. I do it because it is the right thing to do.

for posting it Sandy.

thank you and I hope some of your readers stop out.

Sandy,
All of this animosity between you and Ms. P*** is really a drag. Agree that you both advocate for education, agree that you have different methods for advocacy, and then become good friends. Find a nice bar (Delaney's on Alexis), get a booth, order up a few Sam Adams (Adamses?), have a good time, talk about family, find out how much you have in common. Talk about when you two were kids. Trade stories. Have fun. It's true -- life is short. Don't spend a moment of it feeling resentment. That do no one no good. Christmas is almost here, Sandy. Reach out. Keep Christmas in your heart all year round. I'm thinking Ms. P*** has Christmas in her heart. If nothing else, sit down and talk about how you both love kids.

Patience is a great virtue.

aaaaahhhh, no thanks:) I have plenty of REAL friends to have a Coors Light with...as surely she does.

I was only trying to prove a point...

I was pretty shocked that I was addressed personally on this post. I am always willing to sit down (not over a beer though :)) and discuss ways to reach across the aisle for the good of the children/students.
I really have no animosity towards Sandy. I do have a problem with her addressing me on the blog as Twila but she does this for a reason. I believe she was the first person to address me as Twila when my blog ID was purnhrt. So she outed me but I have no problem with people knowing who I am when I write but I think that was pretty cheeky of her. My only problem with her is that she is TPS to the bone and degrades parents because they don't have the clout that she does with the administration.

As for the "Make it and Take it" event, Imho, I feel that it is a little juvenile for High School students. I know TPS does a "make it and take it" for elementary schools, didn't know it was done for High School students.

Libbey has two small schools with basically very little academic content. Instead of a "Make it Take it" for High School students, why not a college night, or a FASFA night or teach students how to apply for scholarships instead of arts and crafts and Santa (do high school students believe in Santa)

Cookie decorating and making popcorn balls?

Libbey has 1 advanced placement class which is calculus, 2 honors classes which is physics and English 1-3 and 3 college level classes which are English ACT prep and a Tech Prep/Lab. It is also my understanding that they do not have computers for the students. In comparison Start has 4 college level classes, 22 honors classes and 7 Advanced Placement classes. Ho, Ho, Ho, how about some academics, why not work on that aspect?

And who is Pat Lewinski?

Pat is Humanities small school leader...

I only learned it was you through other post...so I figured it was "out there". I will refrain from using your name. I didn't know it was a secret.

This is for the Libbey Learning community families, "future cowboys and cowgirls". It is aimed at the elementary and Middle Schools. The HS students help organize and participate in volunteering for the younger students. It is an opportunity to see what humanities has to offer students and for families to come out and have a few hours of fun, at no cost! I cannot tell you the Thank yous I receive from families- it is enjoyable. WGTE is sponsoring Story time. Our local Boy Scouts serve the lunches.

Anyways, I am happy to spend hours of my time organizing this for the community, come out and see for yourself!
