    Default Another Dallas ISD story

    This one not involving sports, but senior pranks and commencement. Madison HS principal told the students that anyone performing stunts at the end of the year would be banned from commencement ceremonies. Two guys subsequently turned crickets and frogs loose in the school. They have been banned and been cited for Criminal Conduct.

    I think the criminal charges may be a bit overboard, but have no problem with banning from graduation ceremonies. They were told what would happen if they did this, then they did it anyway.

    Time to learn about consequences since they apparently haven't yet.

    Kids have been doing stuff like that for years. Hardly newsworthy in MO.

    It is apparently newsworthy because the parents are raising a stink about their darlings having to suffer the consequences of their actions.

    Sorry parents, pretty harmless prank but they broke the rules and must suffer because of it. Hopefully they learn something(meaning the kids).
    My parents would have agreed with the punishment.

    The parents should punished for naming their kids Da'Rontae and Donnail.

    It seems that the stolen computers at Skyline are more serious...But these Madison kids were warned. My parents would have wore me out.

    At the drop of a hat.

    My daddy and mama would've agreed with the punishments and gave me a good dose of punishment as soon as I got home.

    "something major...killing a mascot or something".

    Are we talking a real mascot, or a kid dressed as the mascot?

    Hmmmm.

    Go Pack!

    Da'Rontae and Donnail are nowhere close to the worst I've seen.

    Sadly, this isn't too unusual.
