Her math grade has dropped and she is in tutoring for it...fine. She is bringing that grade up and her teacher is proud of her progress.
This AM I got an e-mail from her Language/Social Studies teacher telling me DD had an assignment due Friday...She didn't turn it in and was supposed to on Monday, well she was sick yesterday so it was due today. Her teacher asked her for it and DD said "My dog ate it." NOW....our hound DOES tend to eat a lot of different things around the house, I will not deny that, but I'm pretty sure i'd notice if the dog ate something that the students were working on for 3 weeks (I'd think it was a rather large project). The teacher told DD to bring in a note stating this is true (I don't believe it to be truthful). DD needs to be responsible for her work and I really think her comment was a smart a$$ one made to look "cool"in front of her friends...but I'm mad.
How would you handle this if it was your child? I have not responded to the teachers emails yet and I am fuming mad at DD.
