Classic! Even my 9 year old daughter knows this song.
Congrats to all the graduates.
I saw a few fellow bloggers at PH yesterday. I didn’t see you, Dan, or I would have said hello.
* I meant PH graduation at Civic Center
RCPS doesn’t need a facility as big as the Civic Center. At a 50% graduation rate, each school could have it in their own gyms. Save a ton of money. Maybe return the stolen meals tax.
Nothing about that post makes any sense. Percentage of graduation rate has nothing to do with it. You count the number of graduating seniors , multiply that by a number for parents, grandparents, relatives, siblings, and friends who want to and are likely to attend and come up with a number
for the space needed. That number is likely to be significantly greater than the seating capacity of the school’s gyms, which typicvally have been scaled down in size from cuts in construction budgets when the
facil;ities were built. The city owns the Civic Center. What makes you think using the larger civic center facility would save “tons of money”?
You have no idea what the costs are and are just blowing another airless comment through the top of your head.
I was there. The PH graduation would NOT have fit in the gym. Suzie knows nothing. But then I state the obvious.
BTW, suze, I hear that some parents at HV are getting a little nervous about their darlings because the student population is getting more socio-economically “diverse” than they would like.
