Hi, all! I need some advice from you more experienced parents. :-)

The Wombat started kindergarten this year. They are learning letters and numbers; he is reading and doing arithmetic. There are no pull-outs or enrichment, the teacher is...less than cooperative, and he is complaining about it. I have spoken to her several times but feel my concerns are being dismissed.

I would like to see him moved to the first grade as he can easily handle the work and is socially mature enough. To that end, I have an appointment with the principal Monday morning but I don't know how best to approach her with this. She is aware that I would like him moved but I have been told by my neighbor that "they NEVER move kids here."

What can I do to facilitate this? How do I word this so that we are all working for what's best for The Wombat? And please, no lectures about not pushing him because kindie is so wonderful; I get that from his teacher. I just got the butterfly poem in his folder today. <eyeroll>
