Oh...It was my fault.....partially

Ugh....
So, I get a call from a mom telling me that there was some bad things written about Casey in the science books at school. If you remember, she has been having a tough time at school with a nasty group of girls.

Well, I call the Mr. Guidance Councilor and let him know. I offer to come in after school to help go through the books.

Apparently they did it the other day. While they were doing it they also saw that Casey has written her name, herself, on pages. So they call her down and now she has in house suspension on Monday!

Don't get me wrong, she should be punished. But, if those mean girls didn't write those things and I didn't call, she wouldn't have been caught. So I am torn. I feel bad that no one knows who it was that wrote "Casey is a bitch" several times in the books, so that person will not get in trouble. Yet, my kid, who carelessly wrote her name (hello!?!?!?...not very smart to put your first and LAST name in there!) gets in trouble.

It was up to her to tell me and then the principal is calling me today. I will let you know how that convo goes.

That just stinks all around! It's too bad that they can't catch the girls writing the nasty things so that they can be reprimanded as well!
She wrote her last name in the book as well? OOPs! At least she is honest!
GOOD LUCK!
PS-this is why I dread sending my kids to school, I will be the mom that goes in hollering and screaming when someone does something to my kid!

Oh god, I remember this nasty crap in school years ago. I dread this for Julia. Girls are worse than boys are by a long shot. Sorry this happened to your daughter. UGH!
