  • I'm sorry if this is not relevant to the appropriate reviews for this particular website. I am merely in search of finding the two young boys who sold me an Alabama mug ($10) two weeks ago, saying it was for their school fundraiser. I only have first names; Aubrey and Frankie. They were lovely boys riding around my neighborhood on bicycles. They approached me with politeness and sincerity. I paid for my mug with cash and wrote my name on the order form in which they provided. I have yet to see Aubrey or Frankie.....or the mug. If you know of these two young boys, would you please tell them that there is an eager customer waiting for her Alabama mug and they are welcome to deliver it. If they attempted to deliver it and were unsuccessful, they may contact me on my cell (205) 447-5466 to make better arrangements. Thank you for your cooperation. :)

  • I totally agree with the former student's remark because I too think that Ms. Fells is an excellent principal and I donot believe that the parent that say she saw students smoking marijuana in the bathrooms, saw any such thing. If she did, then she should have called the police and put those jokers in jail. It does take a village to raise children and I think that she needs to join in. Now for the English teacher that was on her cell phone you should have made her aware that you were there and reported her behind to not only the principal, but alos the school board. Don't complain or judge because you should have reported it.

  • AS FAR AS I KNOW CENTER STREET IS STILL A GREAT SCHOOL, THE REASON THE TEACHERS DON'T HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER THE STUDENTS IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TAUGHT AT HOME BY THEIR PARENTS, YOU CAN'T SAY THAT MRS. FELLS IS DOING THE BEST SHE CAN SHE IS ONLY HUMAN, AND IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HELP MRS. FELLS, AND THE OTHER STAFF, THEN DON'T PASS JUDGMENT ON OTHERS WHO ARE STRUGGLING AND TRYING TO DO THE BEST THEY CAN, WITH WHAT STAFF THEY HAVE. WHEN I WAS THERE WE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH CHILDREN WE HAD A ZERO TOLERANCE, OF MESS, AND DISOBEDIENCE. YOU HAD TO RESPECT WHO WAS IN CHARGE. AS MRS. STEWART USED TO SAY "IF YOU WORK YOU WON'T MARCH!!"(SMILE) REMEMBER IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE THESE CHILDREN. CENTER STREET MOTTO.
