Dear Mrs. Smith,
RE: REQUEST FOR REVOKEMENT OF A DETENTION.
I received a letter yesterday informing me of my son’s detention that is scheduled this coming Friday, the 10th of December. As a parent and the only guardian to Alex, I have personal concerns on this matter. This is not the first time that Alex is receiving such a punishment in your school, and Mr. Maxwell can bare me witness that I have never disagreed with him in the past concerning my son’s detention. In this particular punishment, however, a lot is at stake, and that explains my disagreement with Mr. Maxwell.
Alex’s rebelliousness and defying nature is a matter that I am deeply aware of, and I have been trying my best a s apparent to help him out in that area of his life. I recently enrolled him to three months counseling and monitoring sessions with an expert that I believe will help transform him positively. He is only three weeks into the program, and I am already seeing some minor changes in him such as him doing his homework in the scheduled time and taking a shower on a regular basis.
The detention scheduled date falls on the same date with the school monitoring session by the counseling expert, and that is my greatest worry. I understand Mr. Maxwell’s frustration of being humiliated in the whole class by being called a liar and threats of students challenging his curriculum, courtesy of my son but let’s not ignore the fact that he is just a rebellious teenager who needs help. I also know that am putting you in a tight spot by requesting you to revoke this punishment, but you are a parent too Mrs. Smith. These counseling sessions cost a lot, and I wouldn’t wish to go at a loss yet this situation can easily be dealt with.
I believe that we all want the best for Alex, so please consider my request.
Thank you.
With regards,
Hellen Brown.
