Yes my student attends new horizons special needs classes, and over the Christmas break, my daughter ask me why she and her friend was not allowed to attend a class project because she was told that there parents did not supply the material to do so? I or my wife was not inform that they were running low, we contribute enough and I know more then most parents do, because I talked to Mary my self, and she told me that my wife and I contribution were more then most parents. I would like to know why my daughter was not allowed to attend? Was this all because I needed a schedule change? I sure hope not!
