My DD takes a lesson after school that is fairly reasonably priced.

I agree that it is poor taste to ask for a monetary donation.

I'm sorry, the coach put out notice that instructs you to have your child give her a monetary gift as part of getting an award at an awards ceremony?

I'd put a note in the envelope saying that you're sorry, but you can't afford to contribute.

I just reread my OP after I posted--the coach wants to go to a summer event out of town

Thank you for confirming that I'm not crazy because a lot of parents seem to think this teacher is the cat's meow and see nothing wrong with the greedy gimmies.
