I don't mind buying cups, tissues and other supplies that my child will be using in school to make his day and his teachers day easier and more comfortable. Things that can't be covered buy the school budget. At least that is how I felt until I received a not from a staff member about a volunteer project at the school written on personalized, customized stationary.
How can there be money in the budget for Tyngsboro Elementary School staff to have customized stationary with the school name and logo on it as well as there own personal name and yet they can't afford tissues and sanitizing gel for the students? Something is wrong here and unfortunately my giving feeling towards the school has now been changed dramatically. I can't even get myself to throw the note in the recycling bin, I would like to send that note in to school with a note of my own written on scrap paper that we use in our house to save money with a small lesson of what is an unnecessary expense.

Buy your children handkerchiefs for their use. You can wash them for reuse.
One wonders what you think is your obligation for your children.

Because Chelmsford does not have a split property tax rate that your Board of selectmen won't approve, Republicans passed a another tax break for the wealthy so you dont get federal aid, and you don't get more state aid because you always vote for Republicans in a state controlled by Democrats, that's why.

When will someone be charged for the murder of Deanne Fontes 2 year old son? I didn't know this little boy but I remember the story. I haven't seen or heard anything on charges. It's a new year now and still no charges. Please, what is going on?
