I remember when I was a lot younger that the easiest way to start a term paper was the Webster's definition. Some habits are hard to break. Webster defines a rookie as an inexperienced recruit in the army or any novice, as on a police force or in a professional sport. This is a story of two rookie seasons. The first is my rookie year with Norwalk Catholic School and I will try to keep that short because it's truly not "all about me" and I don't want to bore anyone. The second is the story of the rookie year of Norwalk Catholic School and what I see as our many successes and great promise for the future.

There is great discussion these days about an official language for our nation, and if we look back in history we'll find that that's not a new discussion. Most of us know of remote ancestors who came from European nations and continued to speak their native tongue at home and among their family members. Here in northern Ohio the predominant European migration was from Germany in the 19th century. These people settled in communities and continued to speak and read in their native tongue, and taught to their children in school when possible. Many of the children never spoke English until they started school or began to mix in the world.

Adding to the massive instability the school district has endured, about 21 teachers were laid off last month because of a mounting financial crisis. Without the cuts, school officials estimated the district would be facing a $1.7 million deficit by 2011.
