Thanks to our amazing Character Ed class (headed by Mr. Buck) each one of our students will get to celebrate their birthday with a root beer float party this year. By celebrating 33 students per week, every one of our students will be recognized on their birthday. Students receive their own personal invitation, a root beer float, and "Happy Birthday" sung to them by the Character Ed class. It's great to be a Diamondback!
