Every year, we celebrate the birthday of the nation's Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin, after whom our school is named. Parents are invited, and of course, all students and staff. It is the responsibility of the Student Council to put the event together, order cakes, make coffee, prepare and set up the tables, tablecloths, serving utensils, plates and cups. Our school serves almost 1000 students and many parents attend Benjamin's birthday party, so it is a huge undertaking that requires lots of preparation. The students members of the council meet a couple of months in advance to organize the event and splits the different tasks. Some will take care of sending invitations, some will be in charge of the cake, from ordering to cutting, some will be in charge of setting up the tables in the foyer, while some will be in charge of the coffee. Others will get balloons or take pictures of the event. There are many tasks to accomplish and coordination is essential. This year, the set up of the event was not as smooth as expected because we were missing a few items that would have made things easier: for example, carts to transport the cakes to the foyer and serving utensils. The student council members just gain valuable real-life skills by organizing Ben's Birthday. They will have another opportunity to repeat the experience in a few months, when we host the ring ceremony for juniors. Thank you very much for facilitating the task for our student organizers!
