DD came home with a note saying there is a melava malka and it's $8 a person. So that's $16.
Then she came home saying they're having a siyum and they need $10 to buy lunch at the pizza store for the siyum (the teachers took all the girls, it was a special thing). I gave her $7 told her to spend the rest.
But that was $26 expected in one week. It just never ends. I just wish they'd have awarensss that nor everyone can just cough up money
This annoys me to no end, not so much because I cant afford it but on the principle of it. If the school gave me an amount for tuition plus all those extra fees related to registration there should be nothing after that. It's not a surprise to them that they are having GO this year, or a yearly school Shabbos, or an art class, etc. My kids schools hear it from me if they ask or they dont get the money.
