    studied real hard. Even her teacher thought it was a solid grade for someone who struggles in math. This boy in her class kept saying she was stupid...wouldn't let it go. I finally reached out to the teacher and she addressed it with the kid's parent. The mom approached me yesterday and in her bad broken english told me her son was only trying to help my dd do better. I said, well that isn't his job and also you don't call someone stupid to try to help them. Guess what she said "oh you are american you take your daughter out for ice cream if she gets an 80" and I said no we have a party for 80, ice cream is when she gets a 70

    My 12-year-old daughter's middle school has an annual fundraising event where they throw pies at members of the student council. From the pictures I've seen from past years it's an unbelievable mess with whipped cream and pudding even smeared in their hair to the point where they're totally unrecognizable. My daughter, Sarah has just been voted the sixth grader students would most like to see get hit with pies! I have to admit that I'm feeling uncomfortable about this. Sarah says she's OK with it, although she said she felt nervous.
