What's the 411 on text message lingo? Teens today are using a totally different language to communicate with their peers, parents, and teachers. It's about time we are all in the know. Teens, I need your help! Let's use this forum to post some of the more obscure slang you may use or read while using the Internet or text messaging.

TIA (Thanks in advance!)

Title translation: Oh, by the way thank you!

Poem in Your Pocket

Celebrate the first national Poem In Your Pocket Day!

We celebrated last year with our Poet-Tree and had a blast.

The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with fellow students, family, and friends on April 17th (Happy Birthday Mom!).

Poems from pockets will be unfolded throughout the day. If you stop by at the school library and show us your Poem in Your Pocket you will be handsomely rewarded!

A message brought to you by the American Library Association’s Campaign for America's Libraries and the William S. Christy Memorial Library (aka the Mepham High School Library).

Cut Loose!

I been working so hard
Keep punching my card
Eight hours, for what?
Oh, tell me what I got
I get this feeling
That time's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town
Tonight I gotta cut
Loose, footloose
