It is just the Byam and it is because of Gilmore

Other schools in our town allow Christmas themed gifts, so it is not as if this is some kind of rule from "on high". It is just the whim of the Byam principal, nothing more and is entirely typical of her ways. One incident in our daughter's class illustrates the point exactly: There was some rule against PG movies, but the teacher got permission slips from every child in the class' parents and still Gilmore nixed the movie when she found out about it! We have put three kids through that school and have a million stories of her blind adherence to rules and control-freakishness.

Hey isn't she the famous "Happy Gilmore?"

I always had nuns for a principal so this is outside of my experiance. I was lucky when she didn't rap me over the head with a metal ruler for general principles.

Not that I didn't deserve it you know.

She really got pissed when I ran a pool on the first Ali-Frazier fight. She tried to make me give her the money for the poor until she found out that Monsignor Delvechio had two boxes in the pool.

Dodged a bullet with that one.
