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.
