I have a daughter named Skye. She is 13 yrs old and in 7th grade at Spencer Middle School. She loves to play basketball. She's been playing since around November with a separated shoulder. She's tough. Around New Years she was diagnosed with Mono and told that she would be unable to play her 7th grade season. She was devastated. We made her rest and treated her with natural herbal remedies. About 2 weeks ago, she was cleared to play.
Skye babysits on the weekends. With the money she earned she recently purchased a black Adidas backpack. It has hot pink handles. She used it on the day of her first basketball game back, last week. When she went into the locker room at the Middle School prior to her game, her things were dumped all over the floor and her bag was gone. Someone in the Middle School had no regard for someone that they brush shoulders with every day. Someone in the Middle School had no respect for a classmate. Someone stole her bag.
Please return it. I don't care how. Leave it at the office or in the lost and found. Hang it on her locker or give it to one of her friends. If you see a friend with it and you know they didn't have one before, ask them about it. Talk them into returning it. If your child comes home with one and you didn't purchase it, ask them how they got it. Do what's right. Just return it and don't do it again.
