Friday's Funnies

Newly discovered quotes from mom's of now famous people:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S MOTHER:"Again with the stovepipe hat, Abe? Can't you just wear a baseball cap like the other kids?"
BARNEY'S MOTHER: "I realize strained plums are your favorite, Barney, but you're starting to look a little purple!"
MARY'S MOTHER: "I'm not upset that the lamb followed you to school, Mary, but I would like to know how he got a better grade than you!"
BATMAN'S MOTHER: "It's a nice car, Bruce, but do you realize how much the insurance will be!"
GOLDILOCK'S MOTHER: "I've got a bill here for a busted chair from the bear family. You know anything about this Goldie?"
LITTLE MISS MUFFET'S MOTHER: "Well, all I've got to say is if you don't get off your tuffet and start cleaning your room, there'll be a lot more spiders around here!"
ALBERT EINSTEIN'S MOTHER: "But, Albert, it's your senior picture. Can't you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something....?"
GEORGE WASHINGTON'S MOTHER:"The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac, you can kiss your allowance good-bye!"
JONAH'S MOTHER:"That's a nice story, but now tell me where you've really been for the past 3 days!"
SUPERMAN'S MOTHER: "Clark, your father and I have discussed it, and we've decided you can have your own telephone line. Now will you quit spending so much time in all those phone booths!"
And finally...
THOMAS EDISON'S MOTHER:"Of course I'm proud that you invented the electric light bulb, dear. Now turn off that light and get to bed!"

you answered my last question pretty well so i have some more. what are they doing with the passing periods? i heard we're going from 7 minutes to 5 and we're coming in at 7:50.

Dr. Mark J. Stock said...

The passing periods will have to be shortened due to the state department rule requiring trimester periods to be a certain length.

I will ask the high school administrators to post a comment on it.

The class periods at the high school next year will be 70 minutes in length. The passing periods will be 6 minutes with a warning bell at 5 minutes. At this time, we are planning on beginning school at 7:55 a.m. and ending at 2:58. These changes are necessary in order to meet the 70 minute class period time and accommodate the busing schedule for students. If you have concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at: or call me at 457-3147 ext. 204 and I will be happy to talk with you.
