The library is the heart of the school, it's the hub.
If the school principal is strong, motivated and a good manager who clearly outlines expectations for staff and students, then the school tends to make progress.
Because of the sugar, no carbonated beverage, no soda can be sold to the kids. If the school chooses to have a soda machine, they can do that as long as the kids don't have access to it 30 minutes before the school day and 30 minutes after the school day.
I used to sing on the school bus everyday.
The school of thought is to win all of your home games. If we happen to lose (tonight), then we're already at a disadvantage. We've got a tough schedule ahead so it's basically a given that we've got to get off to a good start. Every game in conference will be tough.
The school is no longer the center of social life. Kids are either working to help their families or hanging on the street corner.
If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be able to go to the school I go to or do the things that I do now.
They're good students ... and good role models around the school.
It's a tough area. South of the school, there are high- and upper-middle-class citizens - lots of doctors, lawyers, teachers and principals. North of the school, where Jerome lived, you have the inner city. It's a pretty tough area. Jerome and his parents did a great job avoiding the pitfalls of that.
Mercyhurst is a strong program. They continue to turn heads with the quality of players coming from the school, so they must be doing something right. We expect Rich will be no exception.
This is the most successful class in the 100-year history of hockey at the school. These players have a lot of pride. We have a lot of fans here. We want to end it on a positive note. We've already talked about tomorrow's (today's) game.
This doesn't have a damn thing to do with the school system.
We suggested they only count kids who started as a freshman at the school and stayed until they were seniors to graduate.
The school spirit for the game is just not there. Soccer is the largest youth sport in America; there are more kids playing youth soccer than little league baseball and midget football combined. A lot of it has to be because this is a rural, football-minded area.
It's been great. The community is behind us. The school is behind us. Parents are behind us. Everybody is behind us. It's a great feeling.
I think the board and the school are really wanting not to forgo the historic mission, which is to train Christian leaders, but also to prepare students to carry out their ministry in the context of the world as it is today and to prepare them for contemporary situations.
They want to skate for the school they attend in the sport they enjoy.
I've been looking forward to that ever since they came to the school. I can't wait to get out there and compete with all those great players. I want to see San Antonio, too. I hear it's really nice.
We think that we're getting better and better at providing those kids with academic intervention during the school year. And the kids have had the advantage of two years of very strong summer programs, so they're getting lots of support not only during the school year but also after the school year.
We have a stove in there. It's exactly like the school she describes in her book. We twist hay to put in the stove like Laura did.
It's like losing a son. It really is. He was so special. Not only to me, but to the school and to his teammates.
When I called from the school, they said 'You need to be here at the Salt Palace at 3:30 p.m.,'.
They need to be demanding. They need to be role models in the community, the school and with participants. Foremost they have to be a friend of the players on and off the court or field.
We had a group of kids that jumped upon another individual and another student in the school. The security guard went to his aid. During that time the security guard was also injured.
After consulting with all of the school districts in my Assembly district and talking with parents that have school aged children, I have decided to introduce legislation that will continue to increase the cap on open enrollment, ... This bill will help smaller rural schools where students currently enjoy small class sizes.
