at the beginning of this school year, our daughters we’re on the wait list for dance as 5th graders. the arts director called me the week before school to let me know that a spot had opened, but that only one of my girls would be admitted. i told her we had to wait for two spots and she then filled the first spot and told me she would call me back if something changed the next week. the following week another spot had opened, but not two, and we had to stay on the wait list while a second student then joined dance.
if my girls want to do ballet next year they are supposed to audition. i get that, but should i write to the head of the school and talk to her about it? i feel like a whiny ninny-noodle if i do. and what do i say? explain what happened and see if she can do anything? i feel like that’s asking favors, but if i don’t ask i feel like i’m not doing everything i can for my girls.
what would you do?
