I'm sorry. I'm sorry that though I'm the class president, I didn't wear my skirt according to regulations. Since I'm the class president, I should be showing a good example, but… Next time I will make sure to wear my skirt in accordance with the regulations. And I will make it so that not just our class, but also the kids in the other classes, who aren't wearing their clothing according to regulations can wear their clothing according to the regulations. Because I keep getting caught because of my skirt, last year I asked my homeroom teacher if I could wear pants instead, but… I wasn't able to buy pants because she left the school without answering me. I will make it so my skirt is longer. But I don't think anything will change even if I lengthen the skirt. I looked into the method that my teacher told me about before but it would have cost a bit of money… And I lost my ring earlier too… I'm not supposed to wear a ring to school, but… I made a mistake. Couldn't you give it back to me right away? It's the ring that I've been wearing every day… I was going to take it off at home before leaving, but… I forgot. It's a ring I really value a lot. I won't come to school again wearing the ring. If I come to school one more time with the ring on, I will accept any punishment. I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I will make it so that I don't wear my skirt too short in the future. I will do whatever it takes so that I can wear my skirt long. I will work so that the kids in our class follow my example and that we can become a model class in the future. The reason for having to wear the skirt long is that it is embarrassing for others to look at it that way, it's inconvenient to wear like that and because I need to have the habit of wearing clothing in a well-groomed way in the future. I made a mistake. I really, really made a mistake. I feel so pathetic about what I've done. I put on my uniform in the morning without having any thought to wear it short and went to school as usual without pulling it up… and then I got caught. Starting next time I will make sure to lower it as much as possible. My hand hurts a lot now. So I really, definitely don't want to get these punishments again. I really regret getting caught because of my skirt and I have resolved to definitely not have it happen again. I am reflecting a lot on my conduct. I really won't do it again. I am really sorry. I'm embarrased to say this now and my teacher may think that I am disgusting but I love you. I will do my best for the class as the class president.
