When she came into school and found out that she had failed her test, she looked disappointed, but resigned. She accepted it, and said that she was a little bit surprised, but that she would do what she had to do.
Then she wrote an email to her former principal, who now runs a school. I have put the email here because it touched me to read it.
"I have been held behind and would like to know if you can help me. I failed both of the tests. For the ELA test i felt asleep at the time of the state tests. I was going thru a lot that I can't manage at once, like for example my mother was in the hospital and I was so worried, and at the same time i had to be ready for the test. For the MATH I just felt like I needed more time to study and understand things, but I will go to summer school and see if i can make magic work...
Ever since I have been held over in the pass it's been messing with my future. I have a very low self-esteem and I really give up fast, because I feel like I can't do it. I also feel like there's no point in doing something that I know I'm going to fail at. Thats why I was going to drop out of school and get my "GED". I honestly don't wanna get it, I would love to graduate high school and become a successful woman , That's when Mrs. Klein told me about your new [school]l. I would love to attend your school. I promise I would work my behind off, I don't care if i have to stay after school I would work as hard as i could.
So please give me a chance I promise I won't let you or myself down, and if I can't attend thanks for listening."
