We have planned a surprise for him as a school. Shhh..don't tell!
At 9:45 we will meet outside for an impromptu morning meeting in front of the wood building. We have made purple and orange birthday candles, will present him with a basket of his favorite things, and run a lap in honor of his love of running :) Oh...we also plan to sing him a special birthday song. Per request from the class today, here are the lyrics to practice at home tonight:
To the tune of the Flintstone's theme song-
It’s D.E.’s birthday
He is 60, you know it’s true.
We think he is special
And everybody loves him too.
He works hard here all day long,
That’s why he deserves to have this song.
It’s your birthday,
So have a good day,
Have a great day,
Have a grand birthday!
