My family and I went to Westlake High School to attend my granddaughter’s eighth-grade promotion ceremony June 6. We arrived at about 2:15 p.m. and got in line in front of the school.
A line had formed at the front entrance to the school. My relatives and I got out of our vehicles and got in line around the corner near the handicapped parking spaces. People were steady arriving to attend the ceremony. At 2:30 p.m. the line started moving to let the people in the school. The doors of the school on the right side were where the line had formed to let the parents and relatives in the school. As my family got near the outside doors people started to go to the doors on the left side and middle of the front of the school to get in.
Those people who did not wait in line and got into the school before the families who waited in line showed a lot of disrespectful behavior. Shame on you. How are you going to teach your child to respect people if you as an adult are going to behave as you did at that promotion ceremony?
I also noticed some people were leaving after their child’s name was called before the program was over. That showed disrespect toward your child and the other students and school.
Your child is always watching you, so do the right thing.
