I'd just change schools first to see how the new school works for her. She's still young & its good for her to be in a social surrounding with other children.

Have you thought of forming a parents committee to force the school to do more?

Yes. I would also try and hire a tutor to help with the work

Did you took pictures? Have you been writting all the dates of the incidents. It sounds more like a girly thing oh you are my friend and dont play with her.



Volunteer as much as possible and talked to the little girl and tell her is not nice and that they can all be friends ask her would she like for somebody to pinch her and not be her friend. I am sure this can be handled we are talking about 5 year olds.

:!:I would start volunteering more. It sounds like those rooms are out of control because the adult child ratio is so out of balance. They would probably appreciate any help they could get and it might actually help the teacher regain some control and solve some of the bullying issues...short term anyways.



I'd definitely try to speak with other parents in the area to fix the bullying issues.

I try and volunteer as much as I can. (usually once a week) because he works and I have a 1 year old



its not just pinching anymore. She hit her in the ribs.. pulled her.. bit her.
I have pics and doctors notes.

most of this happens in the lunchroom. (there are 7 people (lunchroom staff) and a security guard for 288 5 year olds.

If it were me and I felt that I had exhausted the schools chain of command (which it sounds like you have) I would make sure I have everything carefully documented- bulling instances, phone calls to teachers, princepal's super intendents etc and get some advice from a lawyer or maybe call my local news station..(maybe that is a bit extreme, but what else can you do)..you know they just love a story of a public school not protecting the interests of your child. I'm sorry to hear school is so rough for a 5y/o . What type of bullying is taking place?

If the school does nothing about it, you do what you need to do. We moved and my daughter started at a new school in November 2011. She absolutely hated it and was picked on by the kids in her class. When the school year ended, we gave her the option of transferring back into her old school and she took it. You don't even want to know how much gas I use to drive her and her sister back and forth every day. I drive them 32 miles a day to make sure she goes to a school where she is comfortable and enjoys attending.



It's an absolute pain in the ass and hard on our already limited checking account but their education is important.

Very much so. She's the queen bee of her age group (4k-1st are on this playground) but she's nice and includes everyone that wants to join her and her peers follow suit. She likes to make sure everyone is nice to everyone else. :lol:



However, since she attends a school district where the graduating class has never reached 100 students, she has an advantage since the class sizes are small and the student body is small.
