So long as the food is not liquid or jell you should be fine. Be creative about the packaging. They most likely won't give her bag a second look and will let her pass right through. If by chance she...

I am mean, but it works.

I have tried the books and the lessons and the tattle box and a "I tattled today" sheet. Many of those things give students attention for their behavior which only promotes the tattling. Her is what...

Ask Her!

Ask her why she has moved around so much. If she had no choice in the moves it would be a good thing.

However, if it was her choice to bounce around I would not want her on my team even if she...
