The morals and integrity of our school is being degraded by the methods of certain sports programs.

From elementary to high school we are the laughing stock of the county and the school district because certain individuals dictate what happens because of who they are. Not teaching our kids the value of a being a good person, right from wrong and working hard for the things you get out of the sport. By allowing our athlete's to do drugs, be arrested and still play, to going to practices when you want or don't want to and still allowing them to come in like nothing happened. Run a few line drills come on back to play. This does not do these kids or the other kids any favors. It is sad we have such potential of being the very best and the decisions of few are dividing our school and make us look like fools. I hate that our school is being demoralized like this, no one is big enough to handle these situations like real administrators.

I agree athletes should not call the shots and it should be mandatory for the players to attended all practices unless they have a doctors excuse. I really do not see how this could be blames on Dennis though, the this should be blamed on the coaches. I can say I attended a couple of games last year and was applaud that the girls sr. high team didn't even have anyone who could actually handle the ball. This is the coaches not teaching fundamentals I know that when they get that age you think they should know how to play but when you do not have a good elementary program to teach the basics then what do you expect. It also goes even for the cheerleaders just because you maybe were a cheerleader in school does not make you a good sponsor. You have got to be willing to attend some of the away games especailly tournments with the girls. You must make them practice. Bad mouthing the school has gone on for years Maybe Dennis does need to take a look around alittle but the way the laws are now he is not to blame for alot of things kids can get by with. As far as some of the teachers leaving they to are to blame for letting some of the stuff they goes on happen. Who knows if some of them leave maybe we will have a better school

Obviously "Interested" does not realize that the teachers can only do what the Administration will allow them to do. Every school has some teachers that do not teacher for the right reasons but Hoxie has several that do care but can only do what they are allowed. The basketball programs do NOT get the funding like the FOOTBALL program. We seem to put all our interest in football. The football program is hurting out all round athelete's who could play all sports. I really feel sorry for the kids that can excel in all programs that are forced to choose. If we were a big school I could understand the thought a little better. To bad that our administration and school board tunes this all out an chooses not to address it. Maybe we will get the reality check we need as we lose kids and teachers.

Sorry but I do know teachers can only do want they are allow to do but Hoxie seems to have several who our there to draw a pay check and could care less about our kids. The funding for the basketball programs has nothing to do with coaches teaching basics. If you want a strong program then get involved get other parents to help coach in the pewee system and play each other.. Walnut Ridge did this several years ago and had some really strong teams. The school did not sponsor this it was done by the booster club and each team got sponsors to buy t-shirts. This takes you and me as parents to give up some ofour time and energy to do this instead of sitting back and griping.

Hey "FED UP" that sixth grader had two styes in his eye. He could not come to practice or school per his Doctor. Im at all the practices and that young man paid his dues. He ran ALOT to earn his spot on the team. You need to BACK OFF!!!! He is a good ball player and deserves to play.

This young man was not even going to play because he knew all you crazy parents would have a fit if he got to play. This is a 12 year old boy, leave him alone. He works hard in practice and if he outshines your son oh well. He plays more than my son, some people are just more talented than others and those are the boys that will get to play. DEAL with it. He didnt get to play much first game. He is having to work his way up to a starting position just like everyone else. I have never understood why a parent would be so jealous of a child and try to make things hard on A CHILD. You sound really STUPID.

I know who you are talking about because you 6th grade sports parents ALWAYS are griping about this 12 year old boy. My goodness, if I was his mother, father, grandparents, I would not handle it as well as they do. I agree Parent, why are yall so jealous of one little boy? Practice with your son and maybe he will get as good as him, ya never know.

I am glad he didnt come to practice. I heard he was in the hospital over night because of the flu. I dont want my child exposed. He shouldnt have been at those practices but he should not get punished because he was sick. He did have to run a lot for missing them practices thats for sure. I didnt think he should have had to run as much as he did. The kid was sick.
