Challenge # 9, RED
Lil turned 9 years old last week, what a coincidence, this challenge is the 9th on the list.
Her school has a birthday policy of no treats, pizza, juice can’t be brought to class on your child’s birthday. Instead, the PTA has put a “Birthday Book Club” in place of the usual birthday school celebration. Every student donates $20 and PTA purchases a book dedicated to birthday celebrant and new book is added to classroom’s library. I like the idea and intent of promoting literacy but enjoy seeing the kids faces light up when they see goodie bags, cake and pizza.
Here’s the book they dedicated to Lil in their classroom’s library, plus she gets to keep it home for a couple weeks for reading.
