Your post caught my eye! I'd really like to know how you liked your Yacker
Tracker and if you really thought it helped to keep the noise down or just a
fun thing to entertain the kids. Would it work at the mid. school level or
do you think it's better for elem.? Also...why did the principal ask for
it's removal? I've been toying with the idea of getting one but haven't
heard much about it's usefulness.

Has anyone else bought one yet? For those of you who don't know what these
are, check your "Arts& Activities" or "School Arts" magazines and you will
see them advertised. Toodles.....Bunki
