Yesterday we had an update on the story about a kid who got suspended for BITING his POP-TART into the shape of a gun. This is a young kid…WHO GOT SUSPENDED for that. We wondered who would EVER stick up for this school/teachers? Well, we have something MORE to add to this for you.
At Park Elementary School in Baltimore, Maryland, seven-year-old Josh Welch was suspended for biting his Pop Tart into a gun shape. Apparently, Josh was eating his Pop Tart at school, and he says, quote, “I was trying . . . to turn it into a mountain. But it didn’t look like a mountain, really. It turned out to be a gun, kind of.” His teacher saw the Pop Tart, sent Josh to the principal . . . and he was suspended for two days under the school’s zero-tolerance policy. The school sent a letter home with students saying he was suspended because he, quote, “used food to make an inappropriate gesture.” SEE THE VIDEO HERE!

Wanda Roberts says: Smart. Very smart!! Private schools and homeschooling is the way to go. Better yet – Christian school.
User: The fact a 7 year old has a POPTART inside of a school is more upsetting to me than anything
NO-EL: This is the right thing do. Don’t even mimick an act of violence. Get your mind right. He needs to see serious consequence and counseling behind any deviant behavior as early as possible.
Here is the update…its a LETTER the school sent home to the parents:
During breakfast this morning, one of our students used food to make inappropriate gestures that disrupted the class. While no physical threats were made and no one was harmed, the student had to be removed from the classroom….
If your children express that they are troubled by today’s incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week.
