As a parent of a Wasuma wildcat my number one complaint is the tolerance from the principle when it comes to bullies. Her own son is a bully, he has been disiplined by his teachers time and time again, but nothing comes of it. The principle (his mother) excuses it, returning him from the principles office with a candy instead of a suspension. Other kids see it go unpunished and have taken up the same behavior. The behavior is ignored throughout the campus. There is a good old boys or girls club that exists at Wasuma. If your not part of the clan, your complaints of bulling fall on deaf ears. Its a shame, as a past Wasuma Wildcat the school is not living up to its reputation.
