Four metro schools are closed because of a teacher professional development day (what ever happened to the word "workshop?").
The schools are Bishop Feild Elementary, Holy Cross Elementary, Mary Queen of Peace and St. John Bosco.
And to parents and guardians of students at St. Augustine's on Bell Island — school pictures are being taken today.
I always hated school pictures myself due a cow's lick that would never stay down.

There will always be bullies.

There, I’ve said it. Let the outrage begin.

“How dare you!” scream the experts and the concerned parents. “We must stamp out bullying completely. Zero tolerance!”

Good luck with that.

I agree, in fact, that something must be done about bullying. It is a scourge — albeit one that has been with us as long as humans have walked the Earth...http://bit.ly/SRe9rP
