The experience my child had at this school has tarnished her view towards trusting adults particularly those in charge such as Ms. Beiter, principal. When she was bullied and my daughter finally gained the nerve to report it to Ms. Beiter it was dismissed as "kids being kids." Now, my daughter, who once loved school, cries every morning before she has to go and begs me to please not make her go, because she fears the bullying. Ms. Beiter has been made aware of this on multiple occasions and dismisses it every time. Most alarming is when I discovered my child's diary, and being a parent curious as to how her daughter is dealing with everything, read it. I was left breathless and heartbroken to read my daughter, who is only 10 years old, had written multiple times that suicide is something she has contemplated due to the repeated bullying, and lack of response from the principal in dealing with the matter. To read my child no longer trusts adults in protecting her from those who bully and threaten her and believes suicide to be a solution since her concerns were dismissed multiple times by Ms. Beiter was devastating to read. This school needs a better principal, one who will actually do their job in not only furthering the education of students, but also listen to and protect those who bring concerns of bullying to their attention. How are we to establish trust and faith in our children when their every attempt at reaching out for help is dismissed? Children are our future. Are we to foster an attitude of ignorance and dismissiveness every time they reach out for help? What kind of future does this leave for our children?
