5Th Grade Girl Having a Hard Time with Other Girls at School

My 5th grade daughter is really having a hard time with others in her class. She has 1 good friend, but it seems like the others she thinks are her friends are so hard on her. The clicky thing is already starting. There is constant fighting within her class and it is breaking my heart seeing her going through this at such a young age.
