And the Bullying Continues...

Boy hits girl at West Middle

Well, just when you thought everyone understands that bullying is wrong...

A female student at West Middle School this week was slapped by a boy before class started and after class, he hit her in the head with his book bag and knocked her to the ground.

Thankfully the security cameras in the school caught the entire thing.

The boy student will get some out of school suspension time, then some in school suspension time while the principal comes up with a "plan" for his eventual return to school.

Why is he being allowed back into school at all?  This kid is a thug!

Bullying is so very wrong and I hope that he will be dealt with correctly...I have lunch every friday with my 5th grade granddaughter Bayley...I have done this every friday for 5 years now...I am thrilled with the quality of the students and the teachers and the administration that I have have gotten to know over these five years....The "good apples far outweigh the bad ones"....99-1 at least!

I agree with Jim! I am sure that Prinicpal Waters and her staff will determine the best remedy for this young man and for the safety of all of the students @ FZ West Middle. We,as parents, need to make sure that our children are raised in a manner that would preclude them from becoming the bully. It all starts at home. Good or bad.

Update: The student was initially kicked-off the football team, but then quietly let back on.

The jr jags football progam is not a school supported activity. Blame that on the coaches.
