the superintendent of schools, to
the assistant superintendent for
personnel, to the Anti-Defama-
tion League and to Jewish school
board members.
He has been told that the
school district will try to sched-
ule Employee
Appreciation
Day on a differ-
ent date next
year, "but they
couldn't accom-
modate those
who want to
golf if they
changed the
date this year,"
he said.
He was also
offered a half-
day of vacation
to compensate
for missing Ap-

Christine Barnett, assistant
superintendent for personnel,
said the department "will have a
difficult time finding another
day" when the workers are sched-
uled on a non-school day. `But we
have to be sensitive to all our em-
ployees."

he said, imposes a burden on us
people's lives.
"His message was positive and to respect one another."
President Clinton also talked
upbeat. He encouraged us to re-
member this is our country and about current events in the Mid-
