I would not return the burn book, and I suggest actually burning it. My daughter is an 8th grader, and the school would literally call me over every little thing. I have to be very blunt with teachers, ie “Do not call me about rolling of eyes, a sigh, chewing of gum, or because she took a drink of water when she wasn’t supposed to. Please call me if she is a danger to herself or others, is being verbally abusive, or you have an idea how to help her studies.” This has decreased the amount of phone calls significantly. Good luck, it’s a hard task. I live for school breaks, and the summer.
