rhymes with vegetarian

dear mr. 6th grade science teacher,

it has come to my attention
that the frog dissection lesson is upon us.
my daughter, marian {rhymes with vegetarian},
who is in your 8th period class,
feels very strongly
that she does not want to participate.
she has been a vegetarian for several years
and has a soft heart
when it comes to animals of any kind.
is there an alternate project she could complete?
i am more than willing to have her work at home.
maybe something like this
{knitting in biology 101}:

i hate to be a thorn in your side
at this late date in the school year, 
but i do want to support my daughter
when it comes to something
she feels this strongly about.

thank you,
marian's sympathetic mother

this was the email i sent her teacher yesterday.
he called me immediately & graciously said she could choose another project. he was very understanding.
do you remember the part in E.T. when elliot's class is about to do a frog dissection? each student puts a live frog in a jar, but before they poison & kill the frogs, he sets them all free. go, elliot!
