Wow Mr. Thornton is leaving? hmm wonder why? Who the crap is Simon LeGree anyway? Mrs. Burkalters is leaving, Awesome, That's the best news i've heard. Mr. Britain will be missed. I was his FTA one year. He is a sweet person. And who is Mrs. Thorong? What is Clarkton doing wrong with soo many leaving, with the exception of one person it is fairly disappointing.

Yes Mrs Thornton is leaving too. And to inform you Philip is trying to get the board to let him do the job of both principal and superident and I think it is wrong. He has no business doing both. Plus Toby Richardson supposly is taking Britains place with out the job being announced as open. Must be nice having a Daddy on the board.

That whole school is ridiculous. Nepotism Is wrong. The school board has to realize how silly the school district looks. Start hiring people based on their credentials, not their last name.

Why not just make Philip the super, principal, counselor, librarian and teacher. Then he can criticize, demoralize and penalize himself. And when he screws up, he only has himself to blame.

The news gets better for you BB fans. Mr. Beckwith maybe coming back as principal and coach.

I found out that Mr. Thorton has a superintendent job waiting for him in Springfield. He will be missed!

Well, first of all Tolby Richardson has applied for the job, but the job has NOT been filled and it IS listed. People ASSUME something will happen and pass it on as fact. The fact is, the job is listed and open. If Tolby's the best candidate for the job, then he'll get it. I think it would be great! I think it's great to see one of our own come back to serve the commmunity. I would also like to say that if the board votes on whether or not to hire Tolby, his Dad will not be present or cast a vote.
Mr. Thornton got a job in the Springfield area that will lead him into a Superintendents position. It is definitely sad that he is leaving, but it's a great opportunity for him and one he deserves.
These gentleman are leaving our school not because something is "wrong" with it, but because one is retiring and the other has a higher position available to them somewhere else. We have school board members that are more than willing to answer any questions or concerns you all have about what's going on at the school. Why not ask before slandering them for something they haven't done??

Why not just ask. no one slander anyone. You are just making an azz out of yourself by making people upset. You could have said your peace and not ended the way you did. oh well I believe it was stated before you that the thorntons were going to springfield and almost all of us know that the job is listed and then the position is filled accordingly. thanx for pointing that out NOT...
Best of luck Mr. and Mrs Thornton, Mr. Britian you all will be missed...

Just so you know I have also hear the exact thing "KNOW" stated. so maybe you need to go ask. Philip himself is the one that said he was going to do both jobs AND Mr Britian himself announced to several of the science class back at Christmas that Tolby was already being hired. It might all be informal but it's already a done deal unless ppl kick up about it. Not says Tobly might not be a good choice But when you ask good luck with Philip telling you the truth, because it wont happen!!

LOL So I'm clueless? I said that Phillip was not going to get both jobs and he did NOT. I said Tolby was not already hired for the science job and he was NOT nor has he been. They didn't choose any of the candidates and have extended the application process. I said Mr. Thornton got a great job offer and that's why he is leaving which is also true. So what was I clueless about? There was definitely slandering going on when youre accusing people of doing things that haven't been done, like giving Phillip both jobs and giving Tolby the science job without even posting the job. My point was to ask the people that know instead of continuing to spread gossip.

I would also agree with your comment 'baby momma'. Very interesting choice from a bunch of people that say they want whats best for our kids.

I don't get how they could hire someone to be around kids who obviously has anger issues... Is basketball really that important? How many of those school board members have kids in elementary right now? Do they not think about what the VOTERS would want? That is why they are elected to fill those positions, isn't it? I understand that you can't please everyone all the time, but COME ON! Hiring a person who is obviously MORALLY CORRUPT is not in the best interest of our children. Maybe what this school needs is new board members who will do what it takes to provide our students with the best education possible, not the town with a winning basketball team!

Here is the link to the newspaper article where he was fired from his last job because he beat his girlfriend on a school trip... But I'm sure he'll behave much better for Clarkton...
