Glad to see Mullin leave. Too late for my kids though. She spent her days looking up wine websites on the computer. Proof - we got her old computer. Good luck Mrs. Montecalvo although you won't need it, you're a wonderful person.

Couldn't agree more with you Deb. Mrs. Montecalvo is a wonderful person and did more then her share of the work as vice-principal. The children loved her and she respected them. Maybe they should clean house and get rid of some of the other dead weight over there.
