"THE PROTEST (number two)"

aaand here is the newspaper article about the protest/riot.

School cancels Spirit Week assembly after food fight

TAKE THE POLL: Some 15 students in food fight were suspended. Do you agree with the decision to cancel the assembly?


MISSION VIEJO - School vandalism and a food fight at Trabuco Hills High School prompted administrators to cancel a Spirit Week assembly Wednesday, said Principal Dan Sullivan.

Some 500 students later gathered to protest the cancelation.

The problems arose during the school's "Spirit Week," which encourages students to attend events and participate in activities that promote school pride.

Before school, though, administrators found the campus had been vandalized by obscene chalk drawings on the sidewalk, toilet paper, and streamers.

"The vandalism was done by our own students — primarily juniors and seniors who decided to go too far in their rivalry of grade levels," Sullivan said.

Later a food fight broke out during the student's morning break when some sophomores began to bother students of other grade levels. Two groups of 20 to 30 students heaved water bottles at each other. About 15 students were caught throwing items and were suspended from school, said Sullivan.

By Thursday, campus life had returned to normal. Some students wore black to protest the canceled assembly.

“I can see why seniors would be upset but people other than them have nothing to be upset about,” said Mehdi Tabilch, 15, on Thursday.

“More people wanted reason to protest than were actually upset over the assembly being canceled,” said Lukas Mueller, another freshman.

There were no injuries as a result of the food fight and protest Wednesday. A security guard on campus with the assistance of a sheriff's deputy was asked to provide preventative help in controlling the students, said Sullivan.

Sullivan says as a result, staff was wary of putting 3,000 kids in the stadium for an assembly without the guarantee of a safe environment. He said the students needed time to regroup and calm down.

About 500 students upset over the decision to cancel the assembly briefly protested in the school's quad after fourth period, said Sullivan.

During the protest that lasted for 10 minutes about 30 to 40 students sat in the quad and hundreds of others stood while chanting, said Sullivan.Those students who arrived back to class within 15 minutes of its start were marked tardy. Those who arrived after 15 minutes were considered truant for the period as stated in school and district policy. A couple of students who were overtly defiant or profane were taken to the office and suspended from school.

Sullivan said the demonstration was peaceful and students were eventually cooperative.

The assembly, staged by the Associated Student Body class, involved over 250 students, staff and hired entertainers who were prepared to perform.

"We lost money about $5,000 invested from the ASB into the event," said Sullivan, "It's a great event and really pumps them up, but when kids don't know how to draw the line it can cause problems."

ohhhh, man.
there's a YouTube video up...but it's not that exciting.
just search "trabuco hills riots" of you want to see it.


Wednesday, April 23


so today at school, they were doing this battle of the grade levels thing, and there was going to be this huuuge assembly where one class won after all these competitions and stuff.

well, it never happened. but two riots did.....

at snack, the sophomores and seniors + the rest of the school got in this giant circle and everyone was throwing open water bottles across the circle to hit the other side.

sooo, when we went to our next class, they announced that the huge assembly was canceled (in which i was going to do this ComedySportz thing....).

so. everyone was really mad. so this mass text message went out saying to ditch period five and come to the rally stage to protest...

so like hundreds of kids showed up, and the security guards told everyone to leave, but tons of the seniors like sat on the ground and refused to leave. so the teachers are all in a huff saying how irresponsible we all are... and i guess we were on the news?

tomorrow everyone is supposed to wear black for the "mourning" of the assembly, which everyone found out from another mass text message, that plus people were like yelling it during passing period...

it was like this huge huge deal...but it was so dumb. no one even likes the assemblies except for ASB who spent months planning it (i feel bad for them). i guess everyone's mad because we had this special schedule which made each class five minutes shorter, but then the schedule got switched back to normal.

five minutes is a big deal to some people i guess?

oh gosh, trabuco, you make me laugh.

alright, i am supposed to be doing an essay on symbolism in
To Kill a Mockingbird....
someone, get me off the computer.

iHate You
