Pictures will follow as soon as the school emails them, but I couldn't wait to boast that my daughter was honored as Knight of the Month today! They pick one student from each class (there are 474 sophomores) based on teacher recommendations. The staff comes out, tells each child how fab they are and parents get warm fuzzies (along with yummy breakfast)
This even ties to eReading because my daughter just sold her first short story to Quake! You can learn about Iris Black, her characters and her publishing journey at her blog!
Most fun for me I think was getting the chance to be really sneaky! The parents joining the fun is a big surprise for the kids and my daughter thought I was getting spiffed up for a meeting at my son's school. Even my son thought this and was worried about what was up. He was relieved - after a moment's irritation - but the bagels and chocolate chip cookies made up for it.
Again, stay tuned for more pics about this great start to my day!
