Need Some Ideas, Note From My Sons Teacher (Update Page:9)

I wouldn't wait on the escalation, the school board would know who I am.
And since it's a public meeting means you can record it too.

Very odd note to be sent by any Principal with apparent approve of the Superintendent.

We can always get a group to stand across the street from the schools with signs stating things like "guns aren't bad" "guns save lives" whatever.. Do that nearly any place for two days in a row and I'll bet everyone shuts their pie holes..

I love my kids' school (private Christian school). Not only do we let them use toy guns to re-enact historical battles for history lessons, but we take pictures and put them on the school Facebook page.

AND we have an NASP team (state tournament next weekend!).

Heck, we've had serious discussions about arming the administrator, the secretary, the teachers, etc.



Yeah, it's a financial sacrifice, but I'll never have to worry about this issue or the other corny issues that pop up at government schools.


Best wishes moving forward, man. I feel for you. I hope it all works out for your family.

Our kids do Connections Academy. It's a state charter school, 100% online and our kids love it.

Further, when you enroll there and withdrawal your child from school, the online charter school (because it's a state school) actually takes the school tax money away from your local school. The principal, and the superintendant, will know that their school just shed almost $3k from its budget. This affects the local schools like nothing else, you pull your kid out and send them to private school the local school still gets your tax money and you're still paying...you send them to charter school, the local school gets NONE of your school tax money.

We got calls from the principal and superintendant asking us to try their online school (curriculum was crap, per my wife the former teacher) but we decided against it.

They also provide laptops for your student as well as all the books and materials. You have to return it all at the end of the year, but who cares?

You do have to have a parent at home to work with the kid though, as a learning coach.

Food for thought.

Don't wait and don't let it go. Contact the Super for a sit-down. Don't take no for an answer.

Make sure you have accurate notes from the principal's meeting and the Super's meeting.

Some call it over reaction and some call it standing your ground. As always, we are free to disagree.

I enjoy every minute of it.

.......man, I really do miss those days.

Yep this is how we played as well. We played with toy weapons, and if we didn't have the actual toy weapon we made toy weapons (pennies in a sock made great hand grenades Wink).

We played cops and robbers, we played cowboys and indians, we played all sorts of "violent games" and it seems we turned out fine. My kid is lucky that he has me to teach him all of these things.

This is the type of school that I went to as well (Parochial) and we never had to worry about this horse shit. We talked about guns, we played cops and robbers and army on the playground, we played "violent" games, and there was never an issue. Now kids can't even play dodge ball.

I agree here. I would definitely contact the Super just to re-iterate the issue and the points and to be sure that you are all on the same page here. It is good for the people that receive our tax dollars to understand that we are paying attention.

It might be worth having a conversation with your boy to re-establish her as an authority figure in his mind. You "fighting" her and winning probably shakes his belief (instilled at school) in the teacher as an absolute, omniscient being. If he thinks that he doesn't need to listen to her now because daddy's going to prove her wrong, that could lead to him acting out in the future. Of course, I don't know your child, so that might go unsaid, but I'd probably mention to mine that she is still in charge of the classroom and must be obeyed. Anything that happens that seems wrong should be reported to you, and you'll decide if/how to proceed.
