I am very lucky at our school. Most are very friendly and up for a chat

yeah our school is pretty good.
everyone is pretty friendly and happy. We have quite a few school functions where everyone has a chance to get to know each other, so its good.
DD is fairly social though, so we have a range of people over for play dates (which means you have to get to know the parents a bit)
I do miss my closest friend who has moved away though. It did make things a lot different having that very close friend to rely on.

I must be in the sahm group lol, I was working before bub came, 4 months ago!! My dd is in year 2, we have a little group of 5, we are all sahm except 1 who works 1 day a week! They were all in the same class for the last 2 years this yr my daughter is the only one in a different class! We catch up for playdates & mummy lunches & nights out! We have had a few high school fights with 1 mum blocking the other on Facebook lol I tend to stay out of the drama!

I think I'm one of the youngest Mum's at our school (I'm 25) and no one talks to me. I don't know when they did it but they all seem to be in groups already and DS1 just started kindergarten. I think eventually I'll talk to some of them but I can't foresee us being besties atm.
I can usually look busy talking to DS2 so it doesn't bother me if I'm not in a group.

I work part-time too and only there for drop-off and pick-up 2 days a week. DD goes to a fairly large primary school with about 800 students.
It is a bit daunting and you can't expect to make friends straight away. I just kept an open mind and was friendly and over time have become social with some parents. There are quite a few functions at our school and parent reps usually organise class get togethers and play dates during the holidays at local parks which really helped. I've also been invited to a few parent or mum functions which have been fun.
We've also had play dates which evolved into informal BBQ's with the parents who all live locally. I've actually felt a much greater sense of community since DD started school.
ETA- A number of other school parents live in our street or just around the corner and some of the friendships we have formed have evolved to the extent of taking each other's children to school when people have to work early etc which benefits everybody.

I do not mingle at drop off/pick ups. I'm always running around after a toddler!!!
Now that we are into DDs second year of school I have noticed that people seem to ignore me. I don't think it's because they are being mean just because I've always been to pre occupied to actually talk to them so now they just don't bother.
I feel pretty bad about it actually because a lot of the kids have play dates and DD doesn't because I haven't made the effort to be "buddy buddy" with the other parents.
DH thinks it because I'm a snob! Lol I'm not!! *worst parent here**
