    Not to repeat

    "Yesterday Benny skipped class again and the principal made her to write a guaranty paper/warnantee paper not to repeat this"

    Does this sentence sound natural in conversations?

    Thank you so much

    Re: Not to repeat

    No.

    "... the principal made him promise in writing not to do this again."
