6yr old acting out at school/not at home

My six year old is having a difficult time at school. She does well academically but gets a note sent home everyday for talking/not following directions/ playing around/ being disruptive. Last week she slapped a girl and threw ice at her. I don't know what to do. At home she is very well behaved. In the last two years we have gone through alot of changes. Divorce, no communication with father, I got remarried  and am now expecting my third child. This is alot for her to go threw I know but what do I do to help her cope and stop acting out in school?

It will be crucial to determine if your daughter's symptoms are secondary to some emotional upset/disorder associated with the important changes the family has undergone, or if they are better attributed to an impulsivity (unrelated to emotional disorder) that is due to developmental immaturity or due to a neurointegrative condition (such as ADHD). Making such a determination is a standard component of an evaluation by a pediatric mental health or behavioral health clinician. The best way to proceed is to arrange an appointment with a child psychologist or other licensed clinician.
