Nickle 2017 Grade 9 Grad

In response to the letter regarding the cancellation of Grade 9 grad, we have started a list of parents who wish to talk to the administration about this decision.  Please read the following and forward to any grade 9 parents at Nickle who would be interested. 

In regards to the cancellation of Nickle Grade 9 grade, the following questions need addressing. 

First,  we are certain that not all the Grade 9 students have  been involved in these "negative behaviors by the grade 9 cohort" nor the "disrespectful conduct on school buses and in classes".   We are not sure why all children are being punished. We have a fundamental disagreement with this type of "group" punishment.

Second, we are concerned about the lack of communication between the school and the parents. Parents are beginning to make plans, and dresses are being ordered and purchased. This has been talked about to students for weeks with no mention to the parents. 

Third , we simply do not understand why the kids involved are not being suspended from the grad ceremonies, allowing those that do deserve to go, to go. It certainly is not the first group of grade 9 students that have had some disruptive behavior. 

Fourth, the issues that arose last year have NOTHING to do with this years graduating class. If their have been issues in the past then there should be steps to mitigate the potential issues, such as security guards or additional parental supervision. 

We are of the opinion that this needs to be looked into farther with the administration involved.
