Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX not sure how to post the link as it is adobe read but here is what it says (if you need me to save the file and upload I can try that)
The middle school in a rural community of 9,000 residents has four school-sponsored dances each year.
At the Valentine's dance, a coat-and-tie affair, six eighth-grade boys showed up in rented tuxedos. They
had planned this together, and their parents, among the more affluent in the community, thought it
would be "cute" and paid for the rentals. The final dance of the year is scheduled for May, and it, too, is a
coat-and-tie dance. This time, rumors are circulating around school that "everyone" is renting a tux and
that the girls are getting new formal dresses. The parents of three boys are, according to the grapevine,
renting a limousine for their sons and their dates. These behaviors and dress standards are far in excess
of anything previously observed at the middle school.
Several students, particularly those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, have said they will
boycott the dance. They cannot afford the expensive attire, and they claim that the ones behind the
dress-up movement have said that only the nerds or geeks would show up in anything less than a tux or
a formal gown.

This is due Friday evening. Thank you again for your help.
OK Thank you
I am sorry to bother you. i know you are a very busy person helping many people. I was just wondering how you were doing with helping me with my assignment that is due this evening? Thank you again for your help.
I hope all is well with you.
I posted what I had. I am not sure if I did it right. I think I did but we shall see. I was going to send you what I had written to see if you could add it in or to see if I was on the right track, but I noticed you have not been back on. I am a little concerned. Please let me know if all ok with you.
Thank you for the offer of helping.
Thank you for posting it for me to compare. I am glad to know I was on the right track with the information; however, the way you wrote it sounds better than mine. I guess the writing (wording) will come in time. I don't know what happened either hopefully they can figure it out but I would like to give you a bonus for taking the time to help me out and posting this so we can compare to, as this still helps me see how it should sound when writing. I will add a bonus to the other question you are helping me with for this one. Does that work?
I just wanted to let you know I received a 30/30 on the assignment, so I guess I my writing or wording was good and she understood everything. I am working on an Educational Implications of Socioeconomic Status Matrix that is due this eveing if you are interested in helping and making some money. I can post it in another question for you if you would like because I could really use the help. I have some answers but not many.
Thank you. Ok no problem, thank you. This is the matrix a I am not sure if all the boxes are supposed to be filled in or just what I am thinking. I am thinking it is just a box or two on each one. Then I have to put it into a summary of 300 -350 words
