A fish.

A live goldfish. Who gives out animals as prizes? 

She's in 1st grade at a charter school. 

Update: 5 kids are getting fish every week. At least the other parents have warning! This is going in my Christmas letter. :)

What grade is she in?  That is odd for a prize especially in wintertime.

Where was this prize from? School?  

I would seriously talk to the teacher about something like that if that is the case..  They cant give out a pet and expect you to be cool with that.

She's in 1st grade. She had 4 days of Blue (better than Green) behavior this week. The kids who didn't get fish were upset. My sister is dealing with it better than I would.

Poor fish would've probably ended dead if handed to the wrong person. That's weird. Not something I'd do if I was a teacher.

WTF?  I am so confused as to how this would even happen.  Like, hey, I think I need some prizes for the week.  Goldfish are on sale.  I know, I bet parents will be THRILLED when their child brings home a new pet (but no food or home) today.  Yikes!
