The Curiously Recurring and Redundant Terminating Preposition

Each month, my child's public school sends a variant of the same homework assignment.  The task is the same, but the details vary.  The one constant thing is the opening sentence with the following grammatical error:

"Every month our kindergarten classes do a family art project in which all members are encouraged to participate in."

sometimes I weep for our education system. o_O Having a child in school must be one of the most nerve wracking experiences ever...
