TAMPA, Fla. -- The coronavirus pandemic has schools shut down across the state and students are missing out on a lot of special moments. Among the most special of those moments is classroom birthday celebrations.
You remember the celebrations we're talking about -- a dozen cupcakes for the whole class and everyone screaming Happy Birthday (cha cha cha!).
Lily Wolfe's parents say she was a little sad that she wasn't going to celebrate turning six like all her classmates at Mabry Elementary did.
But to the family's surprise, her teacher Jennifer Buckley did a birthday drive-by complete with music and a huge poster to celebrate Lily's big day.
"I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have Ms. Buckley as Lily’s kindergarten teacher," Lily parents, Sherry and Adam Wolfe said in an email.
As we all navigate the "new normal" under the coronavirus pandemic, remember that we are in this together!
