Ya Gotta Love a Principal Who Sticks to her Guns. Um, Principles. She Doesn't Carry, I'm Pretty Sure.
I'm sitting here listening to the intercom (yes, they broadcast over their intercom to the entire neighborhood, but we always know what's going on!) at Sophie B. Wright Institute for Academic Excellence (Whew! That's a mouthful, even when you type it!) down the street, and I've just experienced yet another refreshing note of what's happening in that school.
The Principal's irritated voice (yes, I recognize her voice by now) summoned three students by name and directed them to board the bus at once: "Get on the bus now. You're holding up the entire bus and the entire route. Get aboard your bus immediately, and I mean NOW! Do NOT make me go looking for you!"
How cool is that -- a principal who takes no guff and suffers no fools. Way to walk the walk, Ms. Clark! Happy Homecoming Week!
