I'd like to take a moment to express my concern regarding the theft of personal items at the Delta Middle School. I had just purchased a pair of expensive DC athletic shoes, which my grandson wore one day and then they were stolen.
Last year he had a Bronco hoodie that had his name visibly written on the waistband and that too was stolen.
Why isn't the school's administration doing anything to prevent this from happening? Don't parents question their kids when they bring home items which they know do not belong to them? Parents have a responsibility to monitor their kids and this includes questioning their children to make sure that they are not involved to activities that are dishonest, illegal or morally wrong.
I hope whoever took his new shoes is questioned regarding the theft. And I would like to be reimbursed and the individual that committed the theft, to take some responsibility for their actions, but at this point that may be just a wish. Hopefully this isn't teaching the thief lessons that will one day escalate, leading to more serious offenses.
