Athena Staff Update – Week 40

The Athena High School Mission: “Our graduates will be prepared for success in college and career in the 21st century.”  

Senior Prank: This morning I arrived bright and early and our maintenance staff was cleaning up toilet paper that was strung through the trees in the back lot by seniors around midnight the night before. No students entered the building and the seniors involved came forward to own up to their actions and accept the consequences.  Students were given a range of community service hours equitable to the amount of wasted tax payer money required to cover the cost of police, maintenance and administrative time to address and clean up. These students also helped us avoid a planned water balloon fight during lunch.  While their actions the night before were not acceptable, I was proud that they owned up to it this morning and accepted the consequence with out argument. There were rumors that students were arrested last night.  The police did not arrest any of the students as they had not entered the building and dispersed when the police arrived.
