"Cat" will not be leaving. She is doing exactly what she was hired to do at St. Bruno... Clean house... and is it any wonder? She is staying regardless of what you speculate may be happening. You think the archdioces is oblivious to this whole situation? They have know for years that St. Bruno is the "problem child " with its revolving door of principles and its inability to enforce and adhere to policy. They have been apprised of every event since the beginning and they support her... not you and your tribe of rebels. By the way, if you think that she has failed.. you couldn't be more wrong. Success has everything to do with quality not quantity. The student enrollment may be less but that was anticipated, expected and necessary. You, of course would see that as failure but the archdioces and the rest of us do not. By the way..... you talk of litigation?...you know nothing.
SOME of the parents who are staying, not all, are doing so because they have something to gain either financial or their kids are problematic. You speak of cleaning house and adhering to policy? Last I checked kids should be expelled if they are caught sexting. Ever wonder why your kids were not invited to parties?

Why do you people have such a vendetta against the principal? It cant be the stalker because all of you kept your children in the school until the last day. You made your choice, now go harass your new principal and try to control that school. Just go away! Good riddance!
<quoted text>
Because she is a liar she is a cancer at st Bruno, she has no leadership skills none what so ever. Doesn't have a plan for the kids but she can quote scripture. Big mike is the master puppet who knows how to backpedal when confronted. Such a weak person. Then we have you fools who post under different names. Such fools, we know who you are and what your doing. Cats clan consist of 4 or 5 people who post under different names. Cats on her too, We know that. You're only fooling yourself. I feel sorry for your kids. Hopefully they won't grow up to be like you....foolish and blind. Remember the numbers don't lie. The marjority will prevail.

Bruno is going to be a great school with a bunch of uneducated parents, teachers, and administrators. Good argument. If you noticed MOST of the educated families have left the school
Hey pops, I know teachers who are staying,and have more education and experience then you have in your little finger. I can tell by your lack of critical thinking. Besides that, there are excellent teacher who are waiting in line to get into SBS and understand professionalism.

Keep dreaming... Why would I pay big bucks to have my child in a class that consists of six students? You say quality versus quantity? Why not just homeschool your child? You are probably more qualified than some of the teachers....

Sadly with so much internal/external turmoil and uncertainty at the school it can't be guaranteed what teachers will be in the classrooms, new or old, until the final days of summer break. That's just the reality of the situation.

Regarding WASC accreditation. It is in jeopardy for an early review due to the drastic staff and enrollment changes. The last certification was awarded on the assumption that the programs presented by the existing/experienced staff would be continued for the duration of the certification. So many changes raise a red flag.

Thanks for the information. I just made my call to them. They've already had a few calls regarding St Bruno, a few more couldn't hurt.

What's your name so I could look up your credentials? So far I've only been able to find 2 credentialed teachers of the few remaining.

Which teacher's are waiting in line? The teacher that started 1st grade and left after 3 days? The other teachers offered 1st grade that declined (before the current 1st grade teacher accepted)? the substitute teachers that refused to come back? Maybe, it's all the newly graduated college students that are looking for experience. Just curious because most schools post this information on their websites. It's usually a marketing technique to show what a great education the school can provide.

By the way, you might want to rethink the way you address people since you are a teacher representing St. Bruno.

I saw this text from a faculty/staff member the morning of the last day of school and thought I'd share with you:
"Thank you for all your support thru all these months. You all kept me going. The staff will go in today with their heads high. We tried to get the truth out and the higher ups played deaf. They ARE the cause of the demise but ONLY a building. The heart the spirit of SBS are the kids, you parents who truly wanted the best and our teachers. That was not destroyed. This community may not be in a centralized location but it remains. Long live SBS!! Love you ALL"
This post sounds like the the blond teacher who plays on facebook in the classroom in front of the students. Ya, my child told me all about it. That was what I was paying for...."oh you kept me going" get a real job in the business world and see if that behavior works for you!!

Thank you for this response. You are very wrong and it proves you are clueless. You're just trying to find people to blame other than those who are responsible. I hope it makes you feel better inside to go after innocent people. Smoke and mirrors no longer work.

If you're so afraid of the truth go back and bury your head in the sand and YOU leave US alone.

What agenda could that possibly be? Oh, "ya " to expose the truth and enlighten others? What a terrible thing, the few remaining families may find out the truth and make an informed decision. Save your prayers for the families that remain, HE already answered the prayers of those who left.

She wouldn't be crying if she was innocent. I said she was very unprofessional. My head is not in the sand. I'm watching the teachers and listening to my child. This teacher has been bad mouthing the school for months in front of her students!
It is my opinion that she is crying because she has to sleep in the bed she made...and it's not so comfortable right now. None of her so called 'friends' are going to pay her bills now.
I am happy I told my truth...the way I see it. NOT afraid at all.

You seem to know so much. You must work at the school or just gossiping like a Big Catholic Man should. Great inspiration for your children. I am praying for your children.

Why is it so difficult to answer a direct question?

Why are you afraid of the truth?

Why are you so upset with our comments but continue to come back for more?

Why are you attacking the many victims of an ugly situation?

What do you get out of kicking people when they are down?

As a vested member of the parish and long term parent at Saint Bruno with reasonable observation and thought skills I feel confident in my statement. If it is beyond your abilities I apologize for stressing you so much. Thank for your prayers, just as every other Christian's experience at Saint Bruno school this past year I appreciate it.
