I did take Jen's advice and went down for a face to face with the principal and I'm so glad I did. She had not received my voice mail. I had left her a voice mail yesterday just saying that I had a concern about something that had happened I didn't state what it was.
It's a good thing I went this morning too because she was getting ready to head out on a field trip with the 6th graders.
She took this very seriously even before I informed her who the girl was that had done the kissing. Once I had given her the name she just kind of made a small groan that basically said "Oh no."
I told her pretty much exactly what I blogged about in my previous post. Except I had asked George again what had happened and found that this girl had covered his eyes. He wasn't just closing them...she covered them with her hands.
They know this girl well there and she did say that there are issues with her. I let her know what McKenna had told me about the suspension and what it was for. Up until I spoke to the principal it was just something that McKenna had heard (granted from one of the boys that she flashed) but she, the principal, confirmed that the flashing and suspension had occurred.
She told me that this little 5th grader basically acts like she 18 or even 30 and she's seen things. I don't know what. I feel really bad for this girl but I will not allow her to cause problems for my kids. Especially for George.
The principal told me she would take care of this today. She didn't say what would happen and I didn't ask. She did say that if the "attitude" kept up or if anything else happened to let her know immediately and they would step in again.
I hope that this girl can get some help one way or another so she can learn that her behavior is not appropriate.
Oh and we will be having "the talk" with George today. We haven't yet and we should have. Now we are.
