    and approved through the superintendents office!

    The high school is hosting a fall carnival tomorrow night. All of the elementary students received a flyer last Thursday and again this Thursday advertising the event. It lists some of the attractions as well as the ticket prices. The tickets are being sold for:

    4 tickets for $1
    10 tickets for $5
    20 tickets for $10
    50 tickets for $20

    Who did that math????? Usually don't you get a discount when you buy in bulk?:eek:

    I guess they are planning on making their profit from the people who buy lots of tickets :whistle:

    I'm guessing they're working in tandem with my kids' distict.

    Our "half days" go from 8:30 am until 10:45 am.... 2 hours and 15 minutes. But those standards, school would end at 1 pm instead of 3 pm.

    Wow, that's some odd math! Um, maybe they like long lines and want people to just buy 4 tickets at a time LOL!

    And Alice, your kids school's half day schedule boggles my mind every time I hear it. Really? 2 1/4 hours makes a half day? Hum, maybe the teachers should argue about all the extra hours they put in each day from 1pm to 3pm!
