Somebody finally told the "truth" and you people don't like it. Unfair? What's unfair? The fact that people are called out by the truth and probably YOU. I love your claim of "humble" Christian families. That's the funniest yet. You people are ruthless and were never humble toward the principal who was and is the ONLY victim. Move on down your red brick road with your red cups in your hand.

Oh shut up already.... It's obvious you have major issues...it's no wonder you're in total support of the principal...you are a nut job just like her.
Move on down

Maybe you can hold your "community" gatherings in the parking lot of J.T.'s. now. Most of you are there on Sundays anwway

"This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people. We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity," he said.

Spoken by Pope Francis, maybe Father should listen.

All this talk about red cups. The smart kids use green cups now. Here they are modeled by Ms. Carvalho and other staff members http://www.flickr.com/photos/sbparent/8740832...

Did they invite you to their swell party?

Any news about the happenings in court. I'm so proud of our principal and pastor. Litigation is so good and such a valuable tool for recruitment.

No matter the excuse, the school is positive now. Negative will not survive. Make your choice.

The judge denied the archdiocese request to dismiss the first grade teacher's lawsuit. The lawsuits will move forward and they go to jury trial September 2014.

The nice young girl that helps in daycare is taking over 2nd grade.

I just don't know where the current 2nd grade teacher is going. She's a wonderful teacher. Maybe they need her in another classroom so they don't have to keep switching the teachers around in the afternoon.

Hopefully they make good use of her years of experience and expertise.

I know! As a parent, I was so happy to have this teacher with my child. She was so good at putting in videos and having the students roll around on the floor after lunch. I am so glad she was getting paid for that last year. This year must of been tough on her having to teach all day.

Like she said, I think she can make the best use of her time with her own children.
Please verify

I heard our 2nd grade teacher resigned and that one of the girls from day care is the new teacher. That has no teaching experience nor been a teacher's aide. Has no credentials nor is she working on it. But does have a bachelor's degree in physical therapy. I'm concerned. Is day care her only formal experience with children? Can someone please verify? Thank you.

Wow! You people just go on the attack!

I take it from your angry response that St. Bruno lost another good teacher.

They key factor in our deciding to stay at Saint Bruno School was Ms. Carvalho's promise regarding hiring credentialed and experienced teachers. After all, it was the teachers that have been with our students these last years that kept the school at a respectable level, we expected the same or better. While our kids are past second grade the hiring of another inexperienced and uncredentialed teacher is just another example of the deceit our administration lays on us. Other posts on this forum were certain that there were hundreds of credentialed and experienced teachers looking for work. Why is Ms. Carvalho hiring teachers after the start of the year that have no applicable classroom experience or credentials?

After picking up our kids in daycare countless times over the last years I trust our daycare worker without reservation in that capacity. Good for her, she had the initiative and poise to get a full time job. But we're paying a full tuition into a system that is not as promised and it appears to be developing into an even deeper pit.

Many of my fellow parents say they are blessed, free of negativity and happy to see "bad" people gone. We don't feel that way. We were hoping to feel confidence in our administration as they guided us through the fiasco. We are questioning our decision and praying for relief.

To all the families out there brave enough to leave and also brave enough to stay, either one a difficult choice. Keep on praying that Saint Bruno School can become the best place possible for the students.

It's all in how you see the situation. "You people?" Are you referring to the parents in the room on Thursday night that complained about her unprofessional behavior? If you are, we are fully supportive of her moving on after she demonstrated such unprofessional behavior. Out with the negative. I'm looking forward to the new positive teacher.
