Every September, theLoop receives email about “Ballroom,” a time-worn tradition in Westchester that brings high emotions from parents on both “sides.” Herewith, the latest.
the Loop is the perfect place to vent my frustration about my least favorite fall activity…Ballroom. The hubbub arround organizing the carpools has begun. The idea of learning ballroom dancing (and etiquette) is fine. I guess. But those who run it use the school directories from each elementary school to solicit their 5th and 6th grade customers. If a parent did that, he or she would be called on it! But year after year, they will enlist a mom from the 4 Larch/Mamk elementary schools to give them the school directory.
How does the school district allow this? How do the parents allow this? This masked marketing technique has these moms recognized on the brochure as the “committee”.
I don’t want to put my name on this, but i want to shout this out to the parents in the district!
What do you think?
