This ‘Virtual Graduation‘ tickled my fancy though I did feel bad for the kids.

In my first post on this, on May 7, I did say: “I will try and snap others if I see them and keep on adding to this gallery“. Well, I always TRY to live up to promises I make.

I am glad I stopped & walked around. I am used to walking around ‘The Circle’. It scares me not, & walking is not a problem. Glad I did.

Saw the pictures of two ‘kids’ I have known for close onto 10-years. That made me smile. I was glad. Quite a few names I recognized.

Well, congratulations. Well done.

Hope these pictures help. This post should be around for a LONG TIME. It is not going anywhere.

All the best. Cheers.


From last year.

Which one is Devanee should NOT be hard to work out. [She looks just like me.]

ACS’ Hillarie Camire, expecting her third — who will, I hear, take the next year off to raise the kids. She did a lot to help Devanee with her singing. The kids will miss her. She is very well loved and respected.

Alton Prospect Mountain School: School Board Committee Assignments Are Beyond Ironic Or Even Incongruous! Talk About Chutzpah.

On April 14, 2013, I flagged that some of the Alton School Board members may have some germane, financial matters related issues, already in the public domain, that they might want to disclose so that we are all on the same chapter so to speak.

Suffice to say that no such disclosures have been forthcoming.

Then, I saw the School Board committee assignments for Prospect Mountain High School (PMHS) in ‘The Baysider‘. That was beyond a joke.

There are a number of words that come to my mind to describe some of these assignments. Shameless is high on the list.

Contrary to what some people think I have no real desire to muck rake or embarrass folks. That is why I urged that the relevant folks make their own disclosures — given that all the pertinent information is already in the public domain. So, I am not going to call out the specific, grossly inappropriate assignments. But lets just say that they had a committee for ‘nutrition and exercise for kids‘. Well it would be like assigning a school board member with a BMI of 35 to that committee. Enough said. At some point this stuff will have to come out. There might even be some legal requirements for disclosure. But, I will let others worry about that, for the time being.

Barnstead Elementary School (BES), NH, Holds ‘Pi Day’ Activity. Kudos.

Barnstead to their credit did have a ‘Pi Day’ event replete also with pies for those that get hungry just thinking about math.

Though the new pope, who was in my published list of top 10 picks, was elected the day before, life continued to be crazy for me with interviews and Web updates. So I got Deanna to take the kids. They went. They like it. They were impressed. They had fun. They learned a few things. Teischan got to do some of the Grade 6 puzzles. She was thrilled. It was good. Kudos, Barnstead.

On the other hand, in Alton, Deanna got told off, in public, for asking on the ‘Alton Central School’ (ACS) Facebook page whether ACS had any plans for pi day. Yes, she was chastised. Why? Because she had done it via Facebook! She was told that matters such as that need to be dealt with by telephone. How quaint. Even the pope uses Facebook and Twitter and ACS demands that you can only ask questions via the telephone. I don’t know who actually told her off. I think it was the administrator of the ACS Facebook page. I don’t use Facebook. So I don’t see this stuff. Deanna thinks it was the Principal that told her off (but it could have been the IT ‘dept.‘) — and said that she should have telephoned the person responsible for curriculum. Wow. Talk about being officious. I wouldn’t have thought that having a pi day was really a curriculum issue. But, what do I know. If it was the Principal that told Deanna off I can fully understand. She has told me off too. Yep, well and truly put me in my place. Made me squirm and suck my thumb. Well, Deanna is not happy. She is not sure why ACS has a Facebook presence if you can’t actually ask bona fide school related questions. C’est la vie. I guess the best thing in future is to send all questions in writing, in triplicate, to the Superintendent, by certified mail. Will do.

But, back to BES. Here are some pictures that Deanna took.

Barnstead, To Their Credit, Is Celebrating ‘Pi Day’. Alton Is Not Even Having A ‘Pie Day’. They Are Having Nachos. No Kidding.

Tomorrow, 3.14, i.e., March 14 (3/14) is World ∏ Day.

Many school districts exploit it as a good excuse to revel in the sheer sensual pleasure of mathematics.

I was delighted to see that Barnstead is doing so. Kudos, Barnstead.

Not so Alton. I had at least hoped that Alton might make it Pie Day. Not even that. We checked, printed timetable and online. No mention.

But, then again, Alton probably doesn’t have to celebrate math.

I went and just checked to make sure. Alton’s much vaunted Prospect Mountain High School (PMHS). 44% of Juniors proficient in Math in the NECAP testing! Is that good? They probably should be treated to pies. Lots of them.
