A kid outside the popular clique impresses so many classmates — especially those belittled by the in-crowd — that she wins the election for class president. Irked by her encroachment into their hallway hierarchy, the preppies shun her.
They snub her idea for school spirit rallies. They plan their own homecoming bonfire to compete with the traditional one she’ll preside over. She arranges a wear-our-school-colors day for Fridays; they wear them on Thursdays.
You have to wonder how a school principal or counselor would handle such behavior. What word would they use to describe such disrespect?
