I would not say anything about my list compared to other class lists. What I would do is discuss concerns and needs for support, such as:

Johnny and Jimmy had difficulties last year in the same classroom, as you know. Did you intend to place them in the same class again this year, or was this an accident?

I have seven children who were rated by their last teachers as having issues with behavior. I'm concerned that they will feed off each other. Do you have any suggestions as to how to prevent this?

50% of my students were below average in their DRA/PALS/or other reading achievement tests last year. How soon can the Reading Specialist begin working with my class to help them get up to grade level standards?

I have six kids working on a pre-primer level. Can I get some extra Kindergarden readers from the book room so I can meet them on their level?

What you're doing is making sure that your principal know the hand you got dealt, and that she knows you are proactive in managing your hand. It comes off as professional rather than whiny.
