Video: 8-Year-Old Cassandra Garcia Gets 'Catastrophe Award' from School

| by Michael Allen

In Tucson, Arizona, 8-year-old Cassandra Garcia received a sarcastic 'Catastrophe Award,' from her teacher at Desert Springs Academy, for the most excuses for not having her homework (video below).

Garcia apparently has a folder full of completed homework and her mother, Christina Valdez, is furious over the award.

Valdez told Fox News: “She said the teachers announced the award in front of the whole class and all the children were laughing at her."

Valdez called the school principal, but says that didn't help: “She blew me off. And said it was a joke that was played and that the teachers joke around with the children."
