So here's my question: Who actually chaperones the Homecoming dance? My daughter, who is a senior this year, told me some pretty disturbing news about the dance this year. Several girls showed up drunk. Some people were smoking pot in the parking lot. And one girl (who was not from HAHS) had pulled up her dress so her thong was showing as she "grinded" on her date. Other girls were seen taking off their panties in the middle of the dance floor and giving them to their dates. COME ON!!! Who is watching these dances? Go ahead, say it, "If you want to complain, then you should chaperone." Well, I plan on it. That was totally ridiculous and I wanted to write a letter to Just the facts just to see what someone from the school might have to say about it. I'd like to think I'm a good mom and I'm not extremely strict with my children, but THIS I will NOT tolerate. Does anyone agree or have you heard of this happening before?
And, I know. To the left it says I'm in Omaha. I'm not, but the computer I am using has the internet address from Omaha.

Did you even think to take your concerns to the school before airing such allegations? True or not true there is a way to handle things.......
Two of my own children attended that same dance.

I figured I'd air them here first. Yes, I have written a letter to the school. Doubt if I get an answer though. Did either of your children notice any of these things?

I would like to tell the crazy woman that that was mine and my friends dates. We had a blast and none of that happen. Sorry your daughter probably doesn't know how to dance, noone was smoking weed cause you can't walk out and come back into the dance. Plus there were cops out side and were not dumb enough to show up drunk to a dance. I hope you read this soon cause I wanna know what you have to say to that. I think you should get your facts straight before you try to run your mouth and accuse people of doing things they didn't do.
Sincerely,
The happy senior that had a hell of a time at homecoming ;)

I'm sure your English teacher is proud. I'm glad the cops weren't "dumb enough to show up drunk". You have insulted the English language by choosing to type your thoughts.

Well, "Happy Person". That's great that you had a good time. No, I'm not crazy as you called it. As a matter of fact, my daughter can dance. So before you go blasting her you better check yourself. After all, I didn't attack you personally now did I? And what do you mean by "That was mine and my friends dates" You were one of them that was showing your thong? Not very good. I'm sure you'll get a ton of respect acting that way. One more thing, I didn't accuse any one person. I just asked where the chaperones were. I don't understand why you would get so mad about this. If you or your friends were doing these things, that's your business. Just don't air all your business out in the open.

By the way, good luck with graduation. With the grammar that you use, you're going to need it. That was actually funny. Thanks, I needed that laugh.

wowwee! I live in Rossville BUT my children go to school in Bismarck. I was also told about these issues but after asking around, noone actually saw these "problems" take place... it was more like...well, so in so saw it, but so in so never did. I guess what i'm saying is that, as long as your children didn't do it, then it shouldnt bother you.. And when i was a senior, we did go to our prom drunk, that's what seniors do... not saying its right, but its a fact. Another fact is that when you put 2 different schools together for a dance, someone always gets pissy. I've been on both sides of this with my boys.. I have an older son who can party and act a fool with the best of them and my middle son is just the opposite. What someone else does is their own personality, and what the others don't choose to do, is also their own personality. We are all different and it doesn't make us bad.

I never said nobody was going to graduate. Get over yourselves little children... you're not as spectacular as you think you are. I didn't specifically call out any certain schools either. I went to Bismarck myself so maybe you all can get over it? This has nothing to do with my daughter not having fun, because she did. I'm just glad that she feels she can come and talk to me about issues. You students are reading waaay too much into what I brought up. Sounds like guilt to me so, whatever.

This site is merely a place for others to stir shit up and spread rumors! As a parent, I would never use the internet to gossip about kids!! Where are your morals???

First of all everything you stated about us is not true so quit spreding it. Its about ridiculous you have to get on the internet to spred some gross rumors that just make us look bad. You'd hate it if someone did that to you or your daughter... Think before you act sometimes. And if you had class you wouldn't be posting this on here and still arguing with teenagers. Maybe you should grow up a little bit and act like the adult here. It isn't hard to figure out who you're talking about. The only other kids from another school were from Bismarck. So quit trying to make it sound like your not. We all know your talking about us. And i dont think i would call you such a spectacular mother either by doing this. Maybe you should get over it, how about that? Oh and Guilt? reallly! Would you like us to just sit back and listen to all this crap your saying about us and not defend ourselves! You're horrrrible. And one more thing... " I never said nobody was going to graduate." Double negative... maybe you should go back to school..

Hahaha I agree. Whoever the mom is talking about homecoming and your daughter issues get a life cause you both are a waste. If you are gunna worry about other peoples lives and accusing them or spreading rumors on the Internet and trying to take control of thongs you can't control then you shouldn't of have been born, so do us a favor die!

Gossip: You're quite right!

How about this?

Parents teach your kids what's acceptable and isn't. If other kids are doing things you don't want your kids exposed to then don't let them be exposed to it. It's not the schools responsibility to fill in where parents may be lacking.

And as for all this "I heard this and that..." let's remember two big things;
1) Teenagers embellish, I did when I was and most do, it gets more attention.
2) Remember "thou shalt not bear false witness"...react based on your own actual observations, not what someone heard someone did somewhere else.
