This month we are trying some new and exciting at Didion! Our entire Didion family – teachers, staff and students in every grade – will be sharing the experience of a truly beautiful book, Wishtree by Katherine Applegate. Wishtree is the story of a 200-year-old oak tree named Red. Every year on May 1st the whole town visits Red and makes a wish for the year. They write their wish on a piece of paper, scrap of cloth (or even an old gym sock once!) and tie their wish to Red’s branches.
