At school, I can earn things like small to large toys. But also it is possible to earn the privilege of having lunch with our building principal, Michelle Carpenter, if I earn a lot of points.

We earn points by completing our assignments, listening and following directions, and being appropriate with students and staff. Sounds easy? Sometimes itis a challenge.

When I saved my points up, I chose lunch with Mrs. Carpenter. She asked me what I would like to eat for lunch, and I said, "a Wendy's chicken ciabatta burger!"

When the day arrived, I was so happy to find this delicious new sandwich with special sauce waiting for me. Mrs. Carpenter ate a salad. When we finished eating our lunch together, we played air hockey on her tablet, and she won.

I had a great time talking, eating and playing a game with Mrs. Carpenter on that very special day.
