One thing that puzzles the Quizz (hey, how many sentences do you see with 4 "z"s in them) is the explosion of various forms of spirit wear by mothers. I'm not talking about PTA/PTO type shirts, or event shirts, but tee shirts, polo shirts, and even jackets with the HC logo on it. As I said, a shirt given for participation in an event or festival makes sense (great fall festival shirt, for instance), but why does it seem that some mothers have a whole wardrobe of clothing? Shoot, even the teachers don't wear the stuff (they do have their own teacher type shirts, though).

And I say mothers, because I don't think I've ever seen a father wear one, unless it was associated with a sports team he was coaching. Wearing elementary school logos seems off the fashion choices for most fathers, I guess.

Unfortunately, it seems as though having children attend HC has become a "status" issue instead of the true desire for children to receive a Catholic education.

Never thought of that, to be honest. I was going more with some deep need to identify with one's kid, but I like your answer better.

couldnt agree more with the first poster, which would explain why these people don't care about the fact that J is running the school into the ground and that their childrens education is suffering
