Honoring a Student of the Week: Thursday’s Activity

By Beth Newingham on September 20, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

Lunch: Parents are invited to join their child, the Star of the Week, in the cafeteria for a special lunch on this day. They can also choose to invite a sibling or a favorite relative to be their child’s lunch buddy. Parents can have the buddy be a surprise or let their child know ahead of time. If parents are unable to make it during our lunch period, I plan a special lunch for the student instead. (I give parents the option of switching any of the days in this week's activities to better accommodate their own schedules.)
