I have said it here before - I was stunned and amazed while working at the high school one day when I overheard some kids in the Media Center pointing out some kids at another table and saying that they were from the "ghetto". When I inquired about kids being bussed in from outside the area with a fellow employee they just laughed and told me that the kids were referring to the original sections of Fishhawk. Apparently it is considered the "ghetto" of FHR.

Oh. My. Gawd. Nailed it! WE live in the original section of Fishhawk, and WE'VE been told it's the "ghetto" of FHR! We pulled our littlest kids out of Fishhawk Creek because they were taunted and belittled. My wife volunteered at Fishhawk Creek...with the KINDERGARDENERS, and she was told...by a 5-YEAR-OLD, "You're not MY boss, you're HER boss," (points at our daughter) "You go over THERE now."
