Bratzbasher received a postcard the other day. It was urging her to purchase a class ring. In case you missed that subtle bit of information, I’ll rephrase: A private company sent a direct mailing to my daughter. How did they get her name and address? Easy. They bought it from the school. Need I say more, or are you equally outraged? I’ve already sent an email to the school to voice my disapproval/concerns. I’ll post an update when/if they respond.
They’re also holding an assembly today to promote the sales of class rings. Obviously the school gets a cut from every sale. Why else would they waste precious class time in this manner? Well, assemblies are one thing. Now my daughter’s information is being passed from mailing list to mailing list. I’m expecting credit card offers in a couple of years. Idiots.
