Hello "Just the Facts" please stop being a troll for one post and write what you think will be good and bad next year at Saint Bruno School. How will the school survive under financial/enrollment failure? How will the school recruit good teachers when there is a record of not being able to make payroll on payday? Do you think the principal and ultimately the pastor should be held accountable? As the situation gets worse when should the archdiocese step in? Are you concerned that they might have to close the school? What do you think will be the general fallout from the parish members and past Saint Bruno School families?

These are questions we parents are all dealing with right now.

Regarding the fish fry and carnival. They will be profitable, but realistically for all the work hours put in by everyone they have turned into burdens. I don't think they will be able to run carnival, fish fry or bingo next year without doubling or tripling the required hours of work from parents.

Old Fashioned, why would you look forward to hearing that the carnival took a big loss? The proceeds go to our community, the people of the parish and school.

Here's the facts....as parents we have run out of avenues to take to rid our school of this woman. We are powerless, being laughed at by the archdiocese and Father Reardon. So my last hope is her utter failure in any capacity so that maybe, just maybe she is let go for her failures. Then and only then can the healing begin. And BTW I am not a miserable person by any stretch. I sad and disheartened and left without a voice other than this forum because god forbid we speak up in person lest we chastised and our children mistreated.

Get a life? who's life do you think I should get? You're on Topix expressing your opinion. Are you any different than the other families that want to be heard? The people you trust with your children are not providing that venue for the parishioners or parents. The archdiocese isn't investigating and Father doesn't care. You, like the rest of us have resorted to Topix. So....."get a life".

My God"????? Nice...... So someone desecrates a school that parents and parishioners have been proudly involved with all their lives, and your response to them is "My God move on" !!!!! Everyone, these are the people that are staying!! Not catholic, that's for sure!

The school never ever see a penny of that, all go to the parish. Father decides if he will donate any of it to the school. Greedy bastard will keep it to himself. That's the reality of the catholic school. The parents slave away during carnival, the parishioners should do this crap.

I can't believe a suppose Christian person would call the pastor of a Catholic Church a greedy bastard, you should respect him even if he doesn't do want you want. You should be ashamed of yourself. I can't believe you and those like you would what the school to close and the parish to fail. You are very vindictive and a horrible person,

Do you blindly respect people just because of a title? Should you respect anyone who hurts children? How many priests and Cardinals deserve our respect in the Catholic Church? If someone wants respect they need to EARN it, no matter what title they hold. The only ONE who deserves our blind faith and respect is Jesus Christ! Think about that for a minute and then talk about respect.

The school is failing. It's failing because of absolute poor leadership. The school has lost 150+ kids. This is the definition of failure by any terms. It starts at the top with the Pastor, Principal, part-time vice principal with a full time salary.

When I think of what has happened to those families spoke out about the happenings at our school, all gone or silenced and with no recourse, I makes me think we may need to re-evaluate who is being vindictive. As parents, with our options exhausted, we can only take our children out of the situation. The leaders of the parish and school could have made decisions that showed us support. Instead they targeted those they felt a threat. I am sorry, but it is hard for me not to think that is what is vindictive and horrible.

You are so crazy! Have you seen what happened in months at the school; the children, all the great teachers and parishioners? You don't get it! All that's happened started from that man hiring this principal, expelling children, renewing her contract, more families leaving, great teachers fired... Who is vindictive?! I think actions speaks louder than words. I think you are so blind. As usual, protect a handful of people and sacrifice hundreds including children. Get your faith straight! He is a man who has made bad and evil decisions and continue to do so with vindictive people around him. You think this priest can't turn to be evil? He is just flesh. His "so called church uniform" doesn't protect him from doing evil stuff. Don't walk with your head in the clouds, this is not a perfect world and this man is not a perfect priest. Don't fool yourself honey!

You must live in a bubble. You are labeling the wrong person. When you sit in the phews at church, the person leading mass is who you should question.

School and parish is not failing because of people like me, it's failing because of how it's being run and who runs it. Priest like this run churches and school like this everyday and we see them fail all the time and people like you cling onto your rosaries and cry and pray. Cry me a river :"""(

I cannot believe the Archdiocese is letting this happen! St. Bruno has always been a strong church and school - one of the best in the area. There used to be a waiting list for enrollment and hardly any turnover in faculty. It is shameful that in less than a year it is almost gone! Very very sad to see this happening!

It's a sin what the archdiocese has allowed this principal ruin the school. The pastor is weak and shows an inability to lead. The flock is taking a stand and leaving

Can't wait to hear what the scrip comittment will be next year. With 115 kids in the entire school each family will need generate $1,000 profit. Hilarious

Today my wife went to pick up the kids and the parking lot gates were closed. She had to drive completely around the school. If the principal had been walking in front I'm sure my wife would have done something unthinkable. The horrors at the school are unending.
The administration is unable to track when to open and close the gates. I feel sorry for the poor children next year when it comes to the quality of their education. Watch out
