Meet Rita Mathes and Jeanne Gast, who stationed themselves in the high school’s front hall on St. Patrick’s Day with a giant box of cookies.
“Top of the mornin’ to you, help yourself,” Mathes wished students going her way.
“You, too, as soon as I can see,” responded a bleary-eyed boy as he shuffled in, fresh from the shower.
“They’re so polite,” said Gast, taking pride in their manners as if all the students were her own. This grandparent of 23 knows most kids in town. “We grew them up from pups, most of ’em,” she said.
Very nice high school web site, btw, including panoramic Quicktime VR Tours...Posted by James Zellmer at March 22, 2004 7:36 AM | Subscribe to this site via RSS:
