"Better teach them to read and write first NOHS."
As a parent and texpayer, I can honestly say that NOHS in particular and CVSD as a whole provide our children with an exceptional education. One would hope that an individual who would through stones at a local high school regarding reading and writing abilities could at least write proper grammar themselves.
The last time I checked, "Better teach them to read and write first NOHS" was not a complete sentence. Perhaps, gee whizz may be in need of some quality public education itself.
Thank you Dr. O'brien, Dr. Trimmer and the administration of CVSD for continuing to provide our children with a quality education.

Enough said. Please teach them to read and write first. This student "Really" is a prime reason why you should. LMAO

I am very pleased that the school and my local fire department has teamed up to do this program. These young people need something to keep them involved in their community and out of trouble. By extending this to our teens they may be able to increase the recruitment numbers and someday one of these fine teens may save our lives or our property. Also, way to go to the companies offering to help defray the cost of the class for those who volunteer. It helps the parents, the school, the fire department, and the community!

You are wrong. Camp Cares was completely funded by the school at a cost of nearly $20,000 (for 3 days and no actual education).

The only thing the school is supplying here is the classroom space and the educational outcome will be a huge benefit to the entire community.

The curriculum, teachers, and all necessary equipment is being supplied by HACC and United, with a cost of $350 to be paid by the student (or the fire company if they are a member.) No tax dollars.

You can not say for sure that no TAX dollars are being used. The fire company recieves money from boro's and townships every year. Where does the boro's and townships get thier money from....TAXES.

If they don't recruit more volunteers and educated the public, your TAXES will go up with a career dept.
