School officials say a middle school teacher didn

Warren Township school officials say the teacher handed out four of the calendars on Friday.

WARREN COUNTY, IN (WXIN) - School officials say a middle school teacher didn't know that the desk calendars she handed out as prizes were full of graphic and inappropriate material.

Bonnie Wright's 13-year-old son brought one of the calendars home from Creston Middle School in Warren Township on Friday. He used classroom points for good behavior to bid on the calendar as a prize.

When she checked it out, she found a lot more than bad words.

The calendar, called "Whoogle," is a 2013 edition. It's about things people Google and it looks innocent on the outside, with the tag line, "I wonder if dinosaurs eat peaches?"

Inside, though, many pages are too inappropriate to even repeat.

Some lines include "How do you know if birth control is working? Is it wrong to sleep with…" and pages full of pornographic lines and content.

Warren Township school officials tell FOX 59 the teacher handed out four of the calendars on Friday. She and the principal have called each of the parents involved to apologize.

The calendars came from Teachers' Treasures on the east side, a store that gives away free school supplies to local teachers. A manager told FOX 59 that the calendars were no longer on the shelves because they are 2013 editions. The owner did not return a call for comment about where other calendars may have been distributed.

She said she wants other parents and teachers to know that the desk calendar isn't what it looks like so that if more of them are out there, they will be found.

Teachers Treasures tells Fox 59 it is reviewing its policy for donations, after learning that a dirty calendar made its way into the hands of a young student.

In a statement emailed to Fox 59, the owner of calendar distributor TF Publishing said his company did make donations to Teachers Treasures, but he did not believe this came from one of their donations.

I am disappointed that it takes an incident like this to get Teacher's Treasures and my company on the news. There are a lot of people that would like to know that my company has donated over a million calendars to Teacher's Treasures / Kids in Need over the last 15 years and that this is a wonderful charity serving our community," founder and CEO Jim Purcell said.
