BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- A Bellingham High School drama teacher has issued a formal apology after her awards ceremony devolved into an evening of profanity, jokes about a priest having sex with kids, and a box of sex toys.
A parent attended the ceremony in the school auditorium with her 17-year-old daughter, who was nominated for an award. Both want to remain anonymous until after graduation on June 6.
The teacher is Teri Grimes, a veteran of three decades who is slated to retire after this year.
In an email to KOMO News, the upset mother complained about the teacher's use of profanity during the ceremony. She said Grimes repeatedly used inappropriate words and told a distasteful joke.
"I sat there with my mouth open in shock and the final straw was when a joke was told on stage about a teacher, a lawyer and a priest on a plane. The plane was going down and the teacher says we have to save the children. The attorney says "F*** the children!" and the priest says "OOOOH..Do we have time for that???" the email reads.
The parent, who brought her young daughter to the ceremony, decided to leave after hearing the joke.
In addition to what she considered to be offensive language and the off-color joke, the parent said the awards handed out during the ceremony weren't appropriate for children. She said one of the categories was for "the horniest stud," where the award was a sex toy.
"WE need to get the word out there that THIS is the kind of TRASH that is being taught in our schools. I am so shocked right now I am in tears," the parent said in her email to KOMO.

Bellingham High School drama teacher Teri Grimes had her students perform a skit dropping the F-bomb and joking about priests having sex with children. Then she held an award ceremony with award categories like horniest stud and horniest girl. The winner of the awards got a box of sex toys.
I heard about this on WEEI this morning, and was stunned.
What a subhuman piece of garbage to prey on children like this. No right-thinking person would let their kid within 50 feet of the pedophile nesting grounds called ‘public schools’. Seriously, teaching is a profession that these days, is ram packed with degenerates and perverts.
They won’t allow anyone to say “God” and it takes one anonymous objection to remove anything “religious” but a majority of parents can’t have any say in crap like this.
