My 9 year old daughter just received her 4th grade class assignment for the fall. She got the teacher she was really hoping for but none of her close friends are in her class. The part that is upsetting is that ALL her closest friends got put into one class. She seems fine with it one minute (she does have some friends in there, but none of her very best) but the next minute she is asking me if her close friends will forget her, why did they separate me, etc. How do I encourage her to stay positive? Do I call the school and talk to the principal about this or just let it be? I don't think they would switch her. I know this is probably a good learning experience for her but I am still confused as to what to do?
