Girl returns to school after bubble gun incident
MOUNT CARMEL, Pa. - A 5-year-old kindergartner headed back to class in central Pennsylvania after being suspended for comments she made to another girl about a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles.
Officials say the girl, whose name has not been released, told one of her classmates in the Mount Carmel Area School District she was going to shoot her with a Hello Kitty pink bubble gun machine earlier this month. She was later suspended 10 days, but the discipline was reduced to two.
The Patriot-News reported that Robin Ficker, an attorney representing the family, says the girl returned to class at Mount Carmel Elementary School on Thursday.
