Superintendent Applauds Good Behavior of Students

St. Croix District Superintendent Gary Molloy Friday lauded students and parents in acknowledgement of exhibiting exemplary behaviors since the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year and further encourages others to follow suit.

“Too often the good behavior exhibited by our students goes unnoticed, while the negative events are highlighted,” Molloy said. “I would, therefore, like to take this opportunity on behalf of the office of the superintendent to extend heartfelt appreciation and a special thank you to those students who have shown responsibility in respecting themselves, their classmates, school administration and staff, their families and communities, and have increased the peace, thus far. The district further applauds the efforts of parents and other stakeholders for continuing to working toward making this school year an exciting, peaceful, productive and successful one.”
The superintendent, however, made a plea to parents about the upcoming Halloween season. “I would like to remind parents of the need to monitor their children’s behavior, particularly during this month of October,” he said. “The celebration of Halloween today harbors anti-social and other negative behaviors which could endanger the safety and lives of innocent persons, not to mention the perpetrators. I am urging parents to talk to their children and discourage them from participating in these unsavory acts. Throwing objects at school buses is not a trick or treat; it is a hostile and criminal act, which is punishable by the fullest extent of the law.
“We don’t want to risk the safety of students, bus personnel or residents at anytime. Any perceived or attempted incidences on or targeted at school buses could result in the interruption of bus service to the problematic areas as has occurred previously,” Molloy said.
