  • An SSPX priest told me that the reason for the split at the school was because a yuppie family wanted their daughters to play volleyball and the SSPX objected to the immodest attire, they just left and started their own school.  So if this story is true, and so many others have opted to follow them to a new school with laxer modesty standards, gender roles, and increased worldliness compared to the sspx school, it does not speak well of it.
    I am hoping Town Crier and Smedley see this post so they can tell me if this is true, or if I have been fed a line of bull.

    Then post it on Tom's thread!
    Sounds like a tall story (?calumny?) to me).

  • Nadir has it right.

    My wife and I are friends with a family who are close friends with the DeMark family who you are spreading false rumors about. They are a well to do traditional Catholic family, heavily involved in their children's education, where all the free loaders pretend to be your friend but hack at your back at any chance. Trust me I know all about it. 

    The cause of the split was about the same 25% of the people paying for the whole thing, doing all the fund raising, and doing all the volunteer work needed while those who attend school for free do none of that. It becomes extraordinarily frustrating to be bullied around by people who should be thanking you for all you do. Ingratitude toward benefactors is horribly arrogant and unfortunately a sign of modern America. Again, trust me. I know this first hand. That's how people are.

    The OLOS school had something like 9 out of 12 teachers quit. Do you think that was about volleyball?

    The DeMark family is very modest in dress and behavior. The mothers and girls always in long skirts and the children are not allowed to date until 21.

    As far as volleyball, the girls from OLOS started playing volleyball for a local team not related to OLOS before the split. The girls do wear skirts when playing.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi joe.  You have me all wrong.  I am not trying to spread rumors about anyone, but trying to bet what I was told here because I know there are people here who know the local situation.  My post expressed doubt about the story I was told at the start and end of the post, but maybe I should have wrote it better. I think you did a fine job telling the truth of the matter, and now that I have heard your side of it I agree with you that the family you described sounds like a very fine family indeed and I did not mean to imply otherwise.

  • The reason for the split was about the quality of the education and NOTHING else. For 3+ years the DeMarks and 2 other families had done everything they could to get these problems addressed but to no avail. all the while I might add continuing their financial support. It should also be noted that their support of the school at OLOS still continues as the recent jog-a-thon shows

    I would also like to add that the DeMarks are a very conservative traditional catholic family as are the other 2 families involved in the split

    What were the specific concerns? Was there any attempt at change? If not why not?

    It was unqualified teachers. Some had no more than a highschool diploma, others seemed overwhelmed at having more than a handful of pupils at one time , some did not stick to the curriculum ( one story that came out was that a teacher had said to a class of 1st & 2nd graders that St. Francis talked to animals just like Dr. Dolittle, it was a math class btw) some would refer children to tutoring for things they themselves did not understand ,at a cost of course , some would use high school students to teach their class while they basically just supervised or looked after the discipline problems.
    EVERY one of the complaints regarding curriculum or the teachers fell on deaf ears. Even after the district was told over the summer what was going to happen they did NOTHING
