East Yancey Action Plan for 6th Graders
Why are only 6th graders subject to the rules set forth in the 6th Grade Action Plan for East Yancey Middle School? This is supposed to pertain to bullying, but humiliation is a far cry from helping to set an example. (i.e. - see rule #3) The rules are: 1. No Talking at breakfast, hallways (including bathrooms), lunch and classrooms unless given permission. 2. Teacher escort to and from every class. 3. Head down when an adult enters the room. 4. No getting out of seat without permission. 5. Lunchroom seating - Alphabetical Order. 6. No Friday walking. 7. No Fantastic Friday. 8. No Panther Pride. 9. No Dance. 10. No Halloween Celebration. Consequences: 3 tallies in one day - Lunch Detention. 3 Lunch Detentions - ISS 9 tallies in one week - ISS According to the rules brought home by EYMS 6th graders, the action is strict because the school cares enough to help the children be successful in the classroom and in life. The above privileges can be earned back with good behavior. The rules were signed 'Love, East Yancey Middle School'. Why are these rules not school wide? Why are 7th and 8th graders not subject to the same rules? Are Cane River 6th graders subject to the same set of rules through this 'action plan'? I'm sure many parents will have lots of questions for EYMS teachers and the school board.
