Several different students on different computers printing different documents have had their print jobs come out as vertical gray lines. 1 was a word doc and 1 was someone printing their transcript from the Potsdam website. It is not always the entire document, sometimes it is just 1 page out of 3 or 4. If you see this or have someone come to you about it, CTS needs as much info as possible. Please find out which OS they are using (Mac or Windows) and what type of document it was. (Word, Excel, webpage,etc) Email me with this information when you get it. Thanks

Over the course of National Poetry Month (April) you contributed 85 haikus to our haiku wall.
Haiku Wall

These poems ranged from the sublime to the profane and most were left anonymously. Below some examples:


Caught between worlds, know
Backwards is not the way back
Forwards is a dream -P.V.


My socks are purple
Your smile makes me smile all day
Do a dance for me


Hello there my friend
Would you like to stay for lunch
And I’ll eat your brains -Your Zombie Pal


Studies in basement
Facebook, Pandora and blogs
Not much work is done


So many choices
Enter life’s vending machine
Pick wisely and fall


Megaman’s a boss
He’s cooler than Mario
with his sweet lasers! -Saixx


I can picture him
Standing in a leaf outfit
Feeding you cheeses


Little worms outside
I don’t like stepping on you
Get back in the ground


Dude, where is my car?
I like sipping apple juice
dance with no pants on.
