1018 is a bus route that always arrives at the school barely on time. It's not the bus drivers fault; it's the route. Many kids and parents are angry with this. I've compiled some quotes from emails of angry parents (I will keep them anonymous) and pasted them below: "Some CVMS bus routes consistently run...

"Why are you even learning Latin? It's a dead language," was the number one response I used to get when I took Latin at my old school. Yes, I'll admit that Latin is technically a dead language, but that doesn't change the fact that it's still pretty useful. While it might not be in everyday life, it...

This turned out to be a good idea. If I had read The Shining first, I might not be as interested in King's work as ...

All children's songs are a little weird, you have to admit. But 'Johnny Johnny Yes Papa' takes weird to the next level. This video is perhaps the creepiest video on the internet now.
