“The flag fee is only gonna be $200 this year and she needs it now but we get to keep our costumes.”
Dear Knox County Schools,
Do not send home coupon books for my children to sell. Do not ask for the addresses of all my friends and family members so you can push magazines on them. Do not tell my children they can win dollar store prizes for selling gift wrap, cookie dough, trinkets or pies. Do not hold school carnivals that only the students who have parents buying tons of this garbage get to attend. I will be writing about $500 dollars in fees to you AND buying a few hundred dollars worth of supplies before the first week of school is over. Don’t ask me to do more or I may have a screaming tantrum. Nobody wants to see that. Doug doesn’t want to hear that. For everyone’s sake, don’t try making my children salesmen for your trash.
Thanks for using good sense,
