FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) - A purple violin is bringing some controversy to Farmington's Tibbits Middle School.
A student at the school, Camille Cruz was recently told that her purple violin was too distracting and that she would have to bring a more traditional one to class.
Cruz's mother is upset about the incident and feels her daughter is justified. She told KRQE News 13 that it was like telling Axel Rose of Guns N' Roses that he had to use a guitar from Kmart.
The district says it's confident it can come up with an agreement that will make everyone happy.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, or if you just want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, head out the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
