Rebels FOR a cause...think PINK!!!

See the two pink streaks in Haley's hair? Well, she learned it was against the school dress code! What? That itty, bitty bit of pink...done for breast cancer awareness??? This is October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when special attention is brought about every year about this disease that took Dick's sister last year. She and the wee girls all got 'pinked' the other day. She certainly did not realize this was a violation of the school dress code. Now I ask you, how disruptive is this, compared to pants bagging down around a person's nether region? Well, she didn't take that rule on face value...and so she and her co-teacher marched straight to the superintendent's office to very politely disagree with the 'intent' of the code. They certainly felt their 'intent' was OK. Check out her blog for details of their, um, respectful disagreement...that she and her co-teacher won! And leave her a comment, OK?

Hooray to you both for standing up for what is fair. The apple didn't fall too far from that gene tree. Scary, huh?

Ginger, she wore your pink angel pin...and could have sold a bunch of them! See the pin below...

Those streaks are not one bit disruptive and I'm glad SOMEONE saw the light on this! Way to go, girls!

Oh brother. It seems we try to correct what folks are doing right and ignore what they are doing wrong. I'm glad they won. Have a great day. Big hug. :)

Oh my gosh...what streaks? I mean really! She could have had a super gauche pink bow, would they have said no to that? Maybe they, would actually - is the dress code that strict to where a girl can't even have a lousy bow in her hair????? What's this world coming to?
