Report: First Grader Sent to Principal’s Office After ‘Mis-Naming’ Boy Who Identifies as Girl

ROCKLIN, Calif. — A first grader was reportedly sent to the principal’s office this week after calling a former classmate, who now identifies as a girl, by the male name he was known by the year prior.

“There was a little girl who had been in class with the little boy all last year,” Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resource Institute, told the Washington Times on Wednesday. “They’re in different classes now, but she saw him on the playground yesterday and called him by his name.”

“The little girl was told, ‘You can’t do that. His name is this name,’ and ‘You need to call him a her,’” she outlined. “Then, she was called to the principal’s office [for an investigation].”

The alleged incident occurred at Rocklin Academy, a charter school in California that has already been in headlines this week as a number of parents have expressed concern that a kindergarten teacher recently read two transgender-themed books to students without their prior knowledge.

As previously reported, the teacher, who has not been publicly identified, read the books “I Am Jazz” and “The Red Crayon” on the second-to-last day of school before summer break. The first book is about teen reality show star Jazz Jennings—a teenage boy who identifies as a girl, and the second tells the story of a blue crayon that was mislabeled red.

No advance notice or opt-out information was provided to parents.

Therefore, when students came home and advised that they had learned about gender identity, with some confused about whether they could transition to the opposite gender, a number of parents contacted the school to express concern.

Principal Jillayne Antoon issued a letter a week later to advise what had transpired in the classroom. She outlined that a student had asked the teacher to read “I Am Jazz” to the class. According to reports, a student who was born a boy but identifies as a girl gifted the books to the teacher. It is not clear if the student who donated the books was the same kindergartener that requested that the Jazz book be read aloud.

“Please be assured that these books are age appropriate children’s books, geared for ages 4-8,” Antoon wrote to parents. “There were no additional discussions with the class about any topic in relation to these books.”

However, according to CBS News, parents say that the male student changed his clothes at some point during the class and presented himself as a girl.

During Monday’s board meeting, one mother lamented, “My daughter came home crying and shaking, so afraid she could turn into a boy.”

Now, the parent of the first grader who was sent to the principal’s office this week is likewise upset over how her daughter was treated. It was discovered that the child meant no harm and was not seeking to bully her former classmate.

“I stressed over and over with the principal that I am all for protecting the rights of [the transgender child], but my children have rights as well,” she wrote in a letter obtained by conservative commentator Todd Starnes. “It makes me sad that my daughter felt like she was punished for trying to be kind to the kid.”

The religious liberties organization Alliance Defending Freedom is looking into both incidents.

      Not to mention common sense and sound reasoning ability. Destroying young impressionable minds is the goal.

    No one has the right to force others to conform to another Individual’s mental Instability and delusion! This is Indoctrination (negatively speaking) of children into an ABSURD and MENTALLY DISTURBED Ideology contrary to objective reality under the disguise of “discrimination”.

    They call good evil and evil good. We will NOT adhere to gender choice pronouns, we will call the person by their birth gender. We will follow our religious convictions everywhere, because they apply everywhere. We will obey the Law of God everywhere, because that is where it applies; everywhere. We will not leave it at the door of any organization or place of any kind. We will disobey the law of the land when it contradicts the Law of God. We must obey the Law of God, because we must obey God above man and that is found in Acts 5; 29. No one can force us to follow anything against our faith. They can persecute us, but they can’t force us to do anything against our will. The question is whether or not you are willing to suffer for Jesus. And, we will not attend any ‘transgender trainings.’ We will not be bullied into compliance. We refuse to go by anything that contradicts our faith. I will resist unto death. So there!

    • God Bless you! I agree with every word.

  • God doesn’t make mistakes. If a baby is born as a male or female, then that is EXACTLY what they are. No child that young should just suddenly decide they wish to be another gender, without parental ( wishful thinking ) coaching. We all need to pray for these misguided kids and parents, in that they find truth in God’s Word.
