honors and
that from now on a GYM grade will not be necessary for other children to be in
honor role. We had made a formal request that the GYm teacher provide us with
the grade criteria that she uses to grade fifth graders. Since the same
teacher had

concerned that after Edelman gave us the criteria for giving our daughter a
low grade
we would go ahead and ask the TITLe IX coordinator to do a review of class
