IS OUTSIDE AT TODD FIELD TODAY-
WEEK-We appreciate everyone’s hard work in preparation for
final exams this week. The purpose of
final exams is for students to demonstrate and apply their knowledge for each
course at the end of the semester, at which time credit is earned. As a school we all will work to create
meaningful final exams and a school environment that is quiet, purposeful and
supportive for students to do as well as they can on their final exams. Students, we need your help in keeping a quiet
school and classrooms during Thursday’s and Friday’s final exams. You will see that class periods are longer –
please use all of that time to thoughtfully and completely finish your final
exam. To keep a quiet school and
classroom, we do not allow hall passes, passes to the media center or passes to
leave school during the class periods.
Students must stay in their class the entire period to help keep a quiet
and purposeful testing environment.
Please plan on bringing extra study materials, school work or make up
assignments to keep yourself busy and quiet Thursday and Friday after you have
finished your final exam or if you have a study hall with no final exam. Students must take their final exams during
their scheduled class period – students are not allowed to take their final
exams early. Thank you students and GOOD
LUCK on your final exams! Mr. Mike
“LEO CLUB’-Join a new club coming to our Hastings
community fall of 2013. We would like to
invite you and other community-focused students to be a part of the upcoming
Leo Club Program in our area. This is
being sponsored by the Hastings Area Lions Club. Leo clubs exist for people that would
consider themselves active, social and fun.
They allow you to develop leadership skills, serve your community and
have a great time, all the time. As a
Leo, you will be given the opportunity to develop your skills as a project
organizer, time manager and team leader.
Come and see how team work and cooperation can bring exciting and
lasting changes to your community. You
will have fantastic opportunities to connect with friends and be a part of
something bigger than yourself! If

is abusive and unacceptable behavior that not only violates School district
policy, but could also constitute a criminal offense. About eight years ago, several students in
the Hastings community were subjected to hazing. The students who did the hazing were charged
with crimes by the County Attorney and received sanctions from both the
Juvenile Court and the School district.
The Hastings School District policy on hazing is very clear-any activity
that intimidates, threatens, harasses or humiliates a student in order for that
student to be initiated or affiliated with a group constitutes hazing even if
that student gives implied permission.
Unfortunately, hazing rituals involving paddling as well as dousing
other kids with food items such as eggs, ketchup, mustard and flour occur
across America. The culture of hazing is
one of power, threats, humiliation and intimidation. Some see hazing as an acceptable “rite of
passage” from middle school to high school.
These individuals are flat out wrong.
It doesn’t matter whether hazing occurs on or off school
property or is directly or indirectly related to a school activity. Hazing in any form or for any reason is unacceptable
behavior that must not be tolerated in our community . Students, we need your cooperation and
support in this effort. If you learn of any information pertaining to hazing, you can make an
anonymous tip at the TIP411 text line, or you may contact the School
District at 651-480-7002, County Attorney‘s Office 651-438-4438 or the Hastings Police Department at
651-480-2300. Thank you students!
