Student Advisory

The semi-retired teacher (now a
teacher’s aide) stands among the
masses of squirmy and fidgeting 
middle school students noisily
awaiting their moment with the
picture-day photographer, decides
there’s still some hope for the world
when he hears the crackle of the PA
system and the Principal’s friendly
paternalistic voice:
……………………… “Attention

students! It’s Picture Day again
here at Switchback, and I’ve been
asked by the Board of Education, the
many hard-working taxpayers who
provide us these wonderful facilities,
and by most of our dedicated faculty
to remind you that—despite the
common parlance rampant in our
school’s hallways this fine morning—
there is no such word as tooken.”
