More Scuttlebutt on the GRISD Marbles Incident

4 April 2008 at 8:30:44 PM

Saw it in the Glen Rose Reporter Newspaper.

Heard some more about it. Apparently the kids who did this were able to walk past two different teachers-one teacher thought they were on their way to shop class with these 5 gallon buckets-another teacher was told that the buckets were full of frogs. Actually the buckets represented 600 dollars worth of marbles! Because for some weird reason the seniors don't have a scheduled place to be, where, um, say, ROLL might be taken, there's a bit of unaccountability going on.

I think seeing all those marbles rolling down the hall must have been hugely amusing. Problem was that Rotan, the Superintendent happened to be, at the very moment, IN the high school showing someone around. I'm not sure, but I assume it was on the order of a show-off of how well he manages the school and may have been quite embarrassing to have marbles swirling around his feet.

The kids were put into some sort of semi-detention place, segregated from the other kids, AND they apparently are not only not going to get to go to prom but also something called Project Graduation. Project Graduation sounds like such a good idea-apparently the graduating kids park their cars at the sheriff's office and then are bussed over to the Methodist Camp for an evening of post-graduation entertainment.

Here's the rub. A number of the parents, including some who are well-heeled in the town, believe that the punishment Rotan dished out is too severe and are therefore, let's say, suggesting that they may withdraw some of the financial help that events such as Project Graduation might otherwise have received. Further, that these ones may foot the bill for an alternate prom and Project Graduation-style night. If that's true, that sure makes it interesting.

For myself, every high school I have ever attended had senior pranks. I heard of one where the locks on the doors were closed up with superglue.. THOSE kids that did that went to jail and I think that's completely on a different level than letting marbles loose down the hall.

Will be interesting to see how this all shakes (no pun intended) out.
