Is this sentence grammatically correct?

My little brother wrote an essay and sent it in to his school website. The essays are student-reviewed, and the girl who reviewed his essay claimed that the following sentence was a run-on sentence. My mom thinks that it is not a run-on sentence, but still grammatically incorrect. For context, it was a narrative essay he wrote about getting tickets to a concert.

"I had a plan - I would show my parents the venue, show them the price of the tickets, try to tell them how much this meant to me, and see what they thought."

Are there any grammatical errors? If so, how would you rewrite the sentence to be grammatically correct?
