My son’s class is allowed to order pizza from the local kosher pizza place on Rosh Chodesh. This is not something that the school arranges, but something that they have to organize on their own. Usually they decide together and a phone call goes out to all of them to bring money to school so they can enjoy the pizza / poutine the next day.
Last week apparently there was a phone call that went out to everyone in the class except for 3 boys, one of whom was my son. The boy who did the calling just decided not to call these 3 kids for reasons that he had not wanted to explain.
These 3 boys came to school without pizza money. By the time they realized that they had been excluded it was too late for them to go home or call home to get money, and they ended up demoralized and sad, eating their “boring” lunches in the cafeteria while the rest of the class yummed it up in the classroom.
When they asked the boy who arranged it all why he didn’t call them, his answer was “I just didn’t”. In my book, this was mean. Why deliberately exclude these kids? The boy had the numbers for the whole class, he has called here before many times for the same reason.
My son doesn’t want me to do anything. He didn’t even want to complain to his rebbe / teacher. But he was very hurt. WWYD?
