There is a fund raiser dodgeball activity that is Friday night after school. My 12 yo had her grades go down and the restriction was she couldn't go if that would happen. I will just make her pay it back out of HER money instead? What would be the best lesson learned for the $5 of it ($8.50 total) was going for a t-shirt that her friend was buying for the team (not for the fund-raiser). She will be letting her team down but I think she needs to get another player to take her place. How do I handle it??

You'll have to decide which lesson you want to teach her. One would be that sports are a privilege and when you don't live up to your responsibilities, there are lots of people that you let down. The other is that mom will back out of what she says if I make a good enough case for it, and as long as their are any extenuating circumstances I shouldn't be held accountable.
