Will Hawkins and Ryan Cubbage were both tossed out on their asses because of bad grades. Why try and help them... Let's toss them out the good ole catholic way!
The real problem was that they both weren't paying and there was no way und was going to waste an athlete sponsor and their money on kids that couldn't play sports!
My child attends N.D. and they were offered help .. There is more to the story as usual

You actually have to work to get good grades. Them kids were helped a lot more than most at Nd. Will struggled period he just couldn't do the work. Ryan was given 50 breaks and sealed his wn fate. News flash you can't fail a grade and expect to get special treatment. What are these kids doing now? Black had nothing to do with it. If your purple and wan't to learn you will learn. Lazy people get lazy results. Not to mention each of them kids were very ungratefull to the poeple who bent over back wards to help them.

Nd offers 10th period 3 days a week. The teacher has to stay after for a extra period to help any kid who needs it. Most athletes and kids who struggle take full advantage of this. If they are showing a effort they will help them for sure. There is also a data base called teacher ease that all parents can log on and no there kids home wrok for the day and there current grades and test scores. You can also use this as a tool to email the teacher or any of the staff for that matter. The teacher gets the email and has to address it that day. Esentially you know what your kid is doing at all times. If people would use the tools provided to them there would be no issues at all. I am sorry but if I had a kid in school this would be the best case senerio. Anyone who claims different is just jealous and or hating.

They don't throw out anyone who pays. None of those kids paid. That's why it's so easy to cast them off like lepers!

Some parents think there kids are pre mondonas and can do no wrong I wouldn't send my kids there because every body knows they turn out worse than if you don't. That is a fact these parents think there kids are all that there not when they mess up it is always worse than the rest of the school population from public I feel bad for the kids the parents are a joke.

Before you call other people a joke you should look in the mirror. Your grammar gives you away.

"Some parents think there kids are pre mondonas"
The right word is their and not there and it's prima donna.

"every body"
It's everybody. One word.

" think there kids are all that there not"
The right word is they're. It's the contraction for they are.

Try some punctuation too. It matters. Sentences end with punctuation.

Most of the time on Topix this kind of thing doesn't matter as long as the thought is conveyed. The exception is when you are trying to make yourself out to be better than those you are criticizing.

if i remember correctly kerwin was a starter on defense and fiorini wouldnt let him run the ball. thats why he left proctor. he went to d-1aa marist which by the way won there league this year. most of his college was paid for. did not play do to complications with ankle. got a bachleors degree and now has a good job. i can go on about some of the others mentionedto. get your facts right before writing stupid shit.

He got a scholarship??? That's BS
Marist couldn't beat Ithaca or St. John Fischer anyway so it was basically D3 football. Didn't start there so his parents spent 5 grand for him to go to notre dame and then a d3 football type school that he never started at.... Looks like a gigantic waste of money to me!
