"Kids—You Can't Beat 'em."

“Kids-You can’t beat ‘em”, was one of the first logos in 1983, when President Reagan proclaimed April to be the first National Child Abuse Prevention Month. I love the dual meaning of this statement. We can’t be physically aggressive with kids. But equally as important, is the message that there is special value in children. Thirty years later, we continue to promote the value of our children and their families, as well as the fact that every member of the community has a responsibility to help…See More

Indian Mascots vs Common Sense...

I have been reading various articles/stories in the last month or 2 that really get my goat...I have seen where in some places, in order for a school to have/keep a mascot depicting an Indian in some way or another, they have to have a letter from an Indian tribe give their 'blessing' as it were, to use it...Sad to say, I did not know our mascot's history when I was going to Palmer in the early/mid 70's. I just knew that it was a cool looking Indian that had a big nose - that's all. No jokes,…See More
