Not Indians

Our school used to be nick-named the Indians, but about 15 years ago, we had a contest to change the name to something more politically correct.  The contest was put on by our Principal at the time, and thankfully his favorite name won.  Our school nick-name is now, "All-Stars."  Lately, I've started taking the name to a another level when we get a new kid:

MR. BOWERS:  What school did you come from?
NEW STUDENT:  ( _____ Elementary) 
MR. BOWERS:  Oh, yeah, well you must have been the best kid at your school because for some reason, you are now an ALL-STAR.  We take all the best kids from every school and bring them here to be ALL-STARS.  Were you the best kid at your school?
MR. BOWERS:  I knew it!  Well, welcome to our school, you are now an All-Star!" 

They always say, "yes."
