Please sign this petition if you are in favor of keeping paddling at St. Augustine High School. You do not have to be an alum of St. Aug. Thanks!

mjbrown, United States2 years ago Comments: One of the few rituals that exist at St Aug and is always a conversation is the PADDLE. My two sons attened and to be perfectly honest "It didn't kill them".Some of their funniest stories are about getting in line to be paddled. Seems different children need disciplin in different ways_ We chose St. Aug and We chose the Paddle.

Kendon Webb 04', United States3 years ago Comments: I feel that the paddle should be kept at St. Augustine High School, because it brings more than just temporary pain, it can alter a young man's life for the better. As a young rebelious teen coming from a tough neighborhood and upbringing it instilled discipline and respect into me; things I couln't learn in the streets or from my negative surroundings. Once these men have graduated and moved on with their lives they will all have the same appreciation for the paddle that us graduates of St. Augustine have today.
