TO JULIE SMITH - My two cents

Hi Julie,

My computer was in the shop for a week and I am now just getting caught up on the Forum.

"If you or your child is currently in the 4th Grade, and going into the 5th Grade this fall (2008-9 school year), then you are eligible to audition for a spot in the new class."

The sentence is very poorly written by someone of extremely limited writing skills. I would have done it this way:

"If you are currently in the 4th Grade and going into the 5th Grade this fall (2008-9 school year), then you are eligible to audition for a spot in the new class." The child does the auditioning, not the parent, and it is assumed that the parent will bring the child to the audition anyway.
