Smallest CityDesk site?

This could be it:
http://inmanmiddleschool.org/

I used the default site that comes with the "New site" option. It's pretty. I had to change the stylesheet to make the bottom horizontal line go from margin to margin:

From:

#navList {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0 0 10px 0;
    margin: 0 0 15px 0;
    border-top: solid 1px #078;
    text-align: right;

To:

#navList {
    list-style-type: none;
    margin-top: 30px;
    padding: 0;
    border-top: solid 1px #078;
    text-align: right;

tk, nice work.  If I may ask, did you do this pro bono?  If not, how did the job materialize?

Terry,

On screen I think it beats out http://www.oztruck.com.

Although to be fair, Bob (the guy who is going to run oztruck) *is* planning to add to the site ;-)

George, it's a long story, but the PTA is paying for the hosting which provides the mailing list as part of the deal. I'm setting it up for them. I'll teach a series of calendar moms to send out announcements. But, I'll probably have a lifetime technical responsibility for the list. School sites have a severe succession problem. Activists parent age out, teachers burn out. At our high school we went through 2 webmasters last year and a remarkable site is now high and dry.

In the midst of learning about school issues I wrote this:

The happy part of all this is that a school mailing list is much more effective and far easier to manage than a school website. Few parents surf. Fewer still would return to the school site once a week. But, most folks read their e-mail.
