Middle School Principal Cancels 'Honors Night' Because It Might Upset Students Who Didn't Make The Grades
A Massachusetts principal has been criticized for canceling his school's Honors Night, saying it could be 'devastating' to the students who worked hard, but fell short of the grades.
MyFoxBoston.com reports that David Fabrizio, principal of Ipswich Middle School, notified parents last week of his plan to eliminate the event.
"The Honors Night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients' families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade-point average," Fabrizio penned in his first letter to parents, the station reported.
But, apparently, it's okay to devastate the kids who worked hard and achieved academic honors...
Contact Info, in case you want to let this Principal know how stupid and unfair this policy is to the children who deserve recognition:

Remember, as always, keep it civil.
