I have a question to ask past and present Westonian, has the use of drug/alcohol gone up or has people gotten dumber and are getting caught. Last year we had about 1 or 2 expulsion due to drug/alcohol related incident. This year we already have 8 expulsion because of drug/alcohol.
Anyhoots, on a happier note, I hope that the girls liked boy 2nd performance last night. For those of you who weren’t there, boy 2nd dress up in 2 stars with candle light and serenaded girls end last night around 10. It was a surprised valentine day gift. Stu, Kevin eppler and I planned it for a while. We hope that the girls enoyed it as much as we did.
(That's about it in Westtown News)
boys 2nd was awesome it was the sweetest thing ever. thank you!
i'm not really sure how much use there is now, but there was a lot going on in my days at wtown. My guess would be people are just getting caught.
nhoung, all the girls absolutely loved the performance. it was amazingly sweet.
yo nhuong son
who got expelled?????
people are getting stupider. I mean...those freshmen girls and all...their first year at Westtown and they're here only what, like 4 months and then they're expelled?? that's just stupid...
...but we're losing a lot of great people in the process.
anyhoots? haha, nhoung that's great.
we loved the performance.
p.s. this thing needs to go back up at school nooooow.
It varies from year to year- my freshman year there were not a lot of expultions, but there were at least 4 people"asked to leave" bcs of emotional problems. I think it just depends on the class- one year there were 4 expultions in the first trimester.
Glad to hear B2 is still going strong. Boy bonding is so awesome.
well stupid people happen every year. its a path to wising up. its how far thier let stray from the trail until they may create a unique path. i can't belive the things i got away with in my career as a student. still, it all rode on the coattails of the classes before me.
The first year I attended, they didn't have an expulsion program for drug use. They instead had a mandatory counseling program. (Smoking in the building was still an automatic expulsion, however, as the thought of a fire catching in the building still gives me the cold shivers.) It was my junior year that they implemented expulsion for drug and alcohol use, which at the time seemed a really backwards step as I felt getting the students into treatment was much more important than making sure the student in question was adequately "punished."
Granted, it is ultimately the parents' responsibility to ensure their child get the treatment they need, not the school, so I understand the point of view that changed.
Stupidity still abounded then, however. I recall seeing a couple of boys doing a little marijuana drug deal in the library, just a few short feet away from Teacher Lucille. So things haven't changed much in 20 years, in terms of stupidity of students indulging in recreational pharmaceuticals, but perhaps the teachers are now more aware of it occurring on the campus.
