I didn't know that every week they would be hitting parents up for money for things. I feel awful that my dd can never be apart of anything because we literally never have money or anything extra. Yesterday I found a old costume with a few holes in it but nothing too big, and put that on her so we could walk to her school halloween event. Turns out they were charging for everything. I didn't even have $1 for u to enter so it was embarrassing to turn around. We have no money for the book fair, donations etc. I just wish all of the money needing would stop. I know that it can't and why public schools need all the help. My dd's school is fantastic,wish I could help more. We aren't on assistance and have two incomes, and have what we need. I just cant afford all the wants. Anyone,can you relate?
