Celebrating "Senior Memory Day," about 60 members of the seemingly forsaken Class of 2013 took to the streets before school began today to shout things like "Get an honest job!" and wave colorful signs in the air. Not all of it made complete sense (the school board president's son held a sign that read "Stay off my lawn"), but the visual impact was clear enough.
"Obviously, this was our biggest memory from senior year," Alex Iammarino told Patch's Debbie Palmer.
At least one teacher voiced her concern on Twitter this morning:
Standing up for my profession and for schools was a difficult experience, but apparently, the senior class thinks the strike was a joke.— Heather KeirnSwanson (@hkeirnsw) May 21, 2013
And a choice, representative response:
@hkeirnsw its spirit week. Calm down and go strike again or something— Zack Bruvarny (@Bruvarny) May 21, 2013
Anyway, the comments section over at Palmer's story reveals that the community is still deeply divided following the teachers' strike.
