Need your opinion on a letter sent home from school from 1st grade music teacher, to all kids in 1st and 2nd?
Hi, this letter just hit me the wrong way and I am not one to start trouble but I am seriously thinking of going to the principle with this.
Starts out saying when the Spring Show will be for 1st and 2nd grade which is at 6:30pm on a Thursday. Telling how hard the kids worked and da da da. Next paragraph word for word
“I need willing student participants for this show. I want the kids that will do their best and want to sing. If your child doesn’t want to participate, then I don’t want him or her to participate either. This may seem harsh, but it only takes one person to ruin a wonderful experience for someone else. Please ask your child if they want to participate before filling out this form . Please understand that if your child doesn’t participate in this spring show, his or her final score for music may be negatively affected.”
How fair and rude is this? I think for 1st grade some of these kids won’t have a choice wether they attend or not. It should be extra credit
also, if they do not want to sing then isn’t there more than singing that makes a show go on. Why can’t they hand out programs or help with the stage and such? My dd is singing this is not why it upset me I just think its wrong.
Also, they have an OPTION? of purchasing a $ 10 t-shirt that all of the classmates are wearing. IN THE 1ST GRADE! and they are singing 50 nifty united states by ray charles
