  • Charter School cooks the books link is wrong. Here's the correct link:

  • Congratulations to Sue Lofton. She was a very professional assistant principal at Steinmetz who had good human relations. I have heard that the faculty was happy with her when Mr. Norman retired.

  • It's in the mail.

    My principal, as of yesterday, was working on his list. He was led to believe that he has by Monday to get his positions and names in order.

    It would be nice to know in advance of the USPS.

  • Congrats to Sue Lofton! I worked with her at Juarez High School when I first started teaching. I wish her the best.
