  • SKI CLUB with Angel and Dina
  • CLASS BLOGS with Jasmine and Sharon
  • WORD UP with Bathien and Ari

birthday-cake-304440_640Last week, in England, a five year old boy named Alex was given a bill for about $30 because he didn’t go to another boy’s birthday party. He had already made plans to spend the day with his grandparents and couldn’t find the information to tell birthday hosts he wasn’t able to go.

Should Alex have to pay for missing the birthday party?
