We at Loyola Park have had some pretty sweet Monkey Bucks Rewards this year!
What is a Monkey Buck reward? Well, it’s when you follow the Monkey Agreements, and Collaborate and Commit and Imagine, and do all your Meisners . . . then you earn a Monkey Buck. When you earn a ton of Monkey Bucks, we add them to the Hula Dancing Monkey’s Hula Skirt.
And when that Hula Skirt gets long enough, you win a Monkey Buck Reward, like Anthony’s Birthday!
That’s right. Anthony was in danger of not having a birthday this year, but because of the excellent students in the Loyola Park After-School Program, he got to have his birthday after all.
Now, I know you’re wondering, “What happens when we earn 600 Monkey Bucks?”
Well, the fact is, you get a Clown Visit, from Mr. C.L.Own (aka Jeff Trainor) to be precise.
He asked Zipporah whether she would rather balance a paint brush or a chair on her chin. She chose paint brush, so Mr. C.L.Own balanced a chair. Then he took a pie (or three) in the face.
