Dear Brand New Gym Teacher,
My son tells me that he has been told that the gym shorts he’s been wearing ALL YEAR are suddenly unacceptable and that he’ll get marks every day unless he gets new gym shorts. There are TWO WEEKS of school left. He will NOT be getting new gym shorts at this time. If you have a problem with this, set up an appointment for me, you, and the principal and we will discuss this. He is NOT to be given marks for something so ridiculous in the last two weeks of school. He is a well-behaved “A” student and I’m sure you have more important things to do. I KNOW I DO!
