School Superintendent

Our very capable Dr. Bryan Dunn will be replaced by Cheryl Crawley. Ms. Crawley comes from Marin County, California.

I think she might feel a little out of place, since she comes from a very liberal, wealthy county.

You know you're from Marin County when...

- It's a bigger deal to come out as a Republican than to come out of the closet.

- Your parents make $120,000 a year, yet you're still considered middle class.

- You know the difference between Thai, Vietnamenese, Chinese, Japanese, Cantonese, and Korean food.

- Left is right and right is wrong.

- Your typical weekend night is spent in a hot tub...

- ...or driving around looking for a party.

- None of your friends are around over school breaks because they're either off in Europe or Hawaii, or spending time up at their Tahoe homes.

- Every car at your school either has a bumper sticker for Kerry 2004 or one with the name of a prestigious college...or both.

- The hippy crowd at your school makes up the majority of the school's population.

- There are more hybrid cars at your school than there are black people.

-You have been stopped by cops for being out past curfew.

- Parties are consistently broken up by 11.

- You know the difference between a Cabernet and a Sauvignon Blanc...before you turn thirteen.

- You spent your Saturday nights as a seventh grader at Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties.

- You regularly eat at vegan or organic restaurants

- You can't imagine going to college parties and having to drink cheap ass beer for once.

Wow. Sounds just like Great Falls!

(Just kidding. Welcome to town!)
