It's been a good run my friend. Go out with your head held high, knowing that you always did what was best for the kids.

Thanks for all you've done for the kids (mine in particular!), the school, and Monrovia. Break a leg, I hear the show is great!

Sorry to see you go and it has come to this. Thank you for all you did for the children, and thank you for the final lesson you are teaching them that one must stand up for one's principles even if the personal cost is high. That it is best to stand up for that which you believe and not just sell your soul. In your leaving, you have my admiration for it stands for something. Best of luck!

I hope that the new MHS Drama Director (Female or Male) is given the List of "Don't and Not's before signing on the dotted line before taking the Job and knows that each school year a propose list of Plays must be submitted to the "Monkey Court" which now after hearing from parents and clergy will have to be voted on by not only the School District will have a special meeting set up with parents, and church clergy and may allow other opposing groups to address and make comments. Folks we all are concerned Parents, but Your children know more about the birds and the bees and very thing else than you did even if you grew up on a farm..and are comfortable with it.. Its US, the adults that aren't. Personally, I would rather have seen something else.. So vote on it before hand... go back 20 years.
