Bring Back SMART Lunch
This petition made change with 660 supporters!
SMART (Students Maximizing Achievement with Resources and Time) Lunch is a program at Cary High School where students are given one hour for lunch. During this time students are allowed to get help from teachers, study, participate in clubs, and socialize with their friends. With SMART Lunch Cary has seen an improvement in academics and students are able to make better use of their time.
On Friday November 14th, 2014, a large fight started near the end of lunch. Students were told to head to their next class fifteen minutes earlier than normal. Shortly after Mr. Bryant, the current principal of Cary, announced that due to the event that occured that day SMART Lunch would be removed starting the following Monday.
Concerned that this will cause more harm than good, students and parents have come together to fight this decision. We feel that SMART Lunch has been very beneficial and removing it will not solve the problem. In fact, since the creation of SMART Lunch, fewer fights have occured during the school day. The elimination of SMART Lunch will only resume this issue.
Cary High is home to over 2,200 students. Why should the actions of a few be taken out on eveyone? If you support our cause, please sign this petition. Thank you!
