I need a translation

I signed up for this thing at school, where they randomly pick 40 freshmen to send them off to Hawaii for a marine lab type thing. I got this notice today, which makes no sense. I need a translation done, and I swear on my honor that this is exactly the way it appears on the paper:
WE ARE WRITING TO INFORM YOU THAT YOUR HAVE RECEIVED THE REQUIRED TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SCIENCE AT SEA AND HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THE WAITING LIST. IN THE FUTURE WHEN THERE IS A CANCELLATION FOR ANY REASON, WE WILL SELECT STUDENTS FROM THE WAITING LIST TO FULL THE VACATED SPACE. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST PUTTING MONEY ASIDE FOR THE SCIENCE AT SEA TRIP - AS SOME CANCELLATIONS ARE IN THE SPRING OF THE YEAR. THIS DOES NOT ALLOW A LOT OF TIME FOR FUNDRAISING. YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO COME TO THE MEETINGS AND PARTICIPATE IN THE FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES IF YOU SO CHOOSE. WE HOPE TO CONTACT YOU SOON.

Catch any of that? I sure didn't.

"YOUR HAVE RECEIVED"?

[You] HAVE RECEIVED. It means that you've been approved by your teachers.
