Students and parents were welcomed to Pequenakonck Elementary school on Sept. 5 by none other than the school mascot, Cubby himself. Principal Mary Johnson and Assistant Principal Dr. Stephanie Bell were up front and center greeting everyone at the door as well. 

Students and parents met this year’s teachers and familiarized themselves with their new classrooms 
from 3 to 5 p.m.

“We do this every year,” Johnson said. “It’s a really fun way to welcome everyone back.”

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...
