.First of all I would like to encourage the parents making these outrageous comments to show up at a PTO meeting if you would like to have voice on what goes on. All year and for the past two years, we only have the same 4-6 attend meetings. These same parents are doing all the work for the children of MVE. Get off your lazy bottoms and come help raise the money and then you can have a say in what we do with it. Just a portion of the money raised from the MVE intramural basketball is funding the attendance zoo trip. We are also paying t-shirtsn for all students for the second time this year and funding inflatables for all students. So, to say we don't support all students is absurd!! Furthermore, if you would bother to check several schools in FC are doing the same trip for students with satisfactory attendance.(Allen, Prestonsburg, McDowell)
And I forgot to mention... All students went to Disney On Ice during the first semester.
This practice is obviously quite legal. All field trips must receive FC board approval. Therefore, I am certain Mr. Webb is fully informed and supportive of this trip.
Allen does not take the children anywhere. The only thing the children with perfect attendance gets is popcorn and icees . However, they do promise the children lots of things for perfect attendance and then when the time comes the kids don't get anything and when asked about it the Assistant Principal ( which is the only person the parents get to talk to) makes up excuse after excuse..
