Oh No! They need a series of spelling achievement tests and a spelling bee, STAT!

I don't know if you have learned this about me but I am the world's worst speller, my mom's personal source of humility (she was an English teacher) But even I caught that one! Okay, so I checked to make sure that it did indeed need two "t's" because it might have been Colton that was misspelled or something else wrong in the pic. Amazing that the signage went through so many hands yet it was not caught. If my mother taught there she would take some red and yellow tape and turn that one "t" into two, she didn't care a wit about balance and spacing if there was a spelling or grammer error! Certainly they have changed that sign by now!

Yikes! I see this sort of thing all the time, unfortunately. I was sorting through some old papers yesterday and found a note of encouragement from a counselor at my college. It was sweet, but chock full of "oopsies!"

I have a post about economies and cows I think you would like, Sparky! Come on over when you get a chance.

Not sure what's worse: the sign maker who didn't catch their mistake or the school 'committed' to excellence...hmmm
