I'm spamming this community because I can. Besides, you're not getting any real updates, you need a good A-Rae spam. So -

Sorry, I just love playing the marquee command. :)

Anyhow. We seem to be suffering a lack of interesting school news, other than the fact this is probably our last year of school till June (since don't most colleges get out during May?), and the traditional "Omigod, < random class > r0x0rz the b0x0rz!!!!111oneoneone".... There is, of course, the beginning of cuts to the arts programs, but there doesn't seem to be enough information out there to discuss it in full yet, other than a whole lot of angry art/music students and fall drama junkees. It's rather bittersweet. If you've ever seen the movie Mr. Holland's Opus, then maybe you've got those sort of butterflies in the back of your stomach. Besides, I doubt there will be a fall drama director as coordinated and qualified as Mr. Kelly was. You have to admit, the man's, well, the man. Interestingly enough, they seem to have also gotten rid of public speaking class for next year.... Eight periods of gym. We might as well all sign up for brainless classes where no work's involved. That's what colleges really look for!

I'd spam you with some relevantly off-topic things...but I figure I'm annoying enough as it is. Now kick this community back into shape, slubberdegullions. Or at least fetch me a muffin. Mmm...muffin.

I learned so much in public speaking.
It is my favorite class ever.
although i didn't have Mr. kelly for public speaking that class was so helpful to me with my public speaking. it made me more comfortable speaking on front of people. i did have Mr. kelly for Theater arts!! that was an aweosme class. It sucks that he's leaving. As for the cuts to the arts programing, its been happening every where! esp. in public schools and it has to STOP! the arts are so important to having well rounded students. As for more Gym classes, most kids when they have the option to take gym or a class they would have to do work in, most people would tell you its a no brainer, GYM! i'm not like that. but sadly that's the way that our youth is going. don't get me wrong people could choose it cuz they have 3 AP class amd want a break form work, but most just want to have cake classes, esp. senior year.

most of the cuts have come from lack of intrest. The sports there is so much intrest with the students, some play a sport every season. However not many show an intrest in the arts which is sad, maybe cuz they can't fit it in with their sports. Maybe they are afriad to get involved it's not "cool"(what ever the heck that means) whatever the reason it sucks big time that the arts have to suffer. There needs to be a change.
