>the fly on the wall

>the fly on the wall has just learned something interesting. The new HS principle is coming to us from a school that was classified as as “in need of improvement, Year 1” for 2004-2005 by the IL State Board of Education. This means the school failed to make AYP (adequate yearly progress) for two consecutive years. Parents have the option to transfer their kids out of that school. Looks like they had a little trouble with the No child left behind. The BOE website states “Jack Lorenz is a professional high school administrator. He has gone through al the steps from teacher, assistant principal to principal in several different high school settings. He has the experience and expertise that RHS needs right now.”

>Allergy Season

Folks incase you haven’t noticed the pollen count has been unusually high in the Village last couple of weeks primarily from Oak, Birch and Maple. No you don’t have a cold its allergies. I have always suffered form very bad allergies but this past two weeks have been very difficult. There are many allergy remedies over the counter or Doctor prescribed. I am not a doctor but I do have a few tips, they may help a bit. Green tea with lemon, gargle with warm salt water, grape fruit juice and regular aspirin or some kind of over the counter pain reliever. Not a cure all but they wont kill you and I have found them in a long life of suffering allergies to help me .
