All your children are good listeners and would have achieved this award by the end of the year. We will have your certificate and a treat ready with your costume pickup.
For those who still seek to earn this incentive, see Plank Posse and Splits Club requirements. You can earn it any time before May 20. Email us a video of you completing the requirements email@example.com. Then send us a text so we can look out for it (406)7815653.
