School’s Out For Summer!

Another outstanding year comes to an end, please have a restful time and please do keep yourselves safe. See you in September.

Hello, Summer! — (A Last Day of School Poem)
by Gregory K.

Goodbye, classroom!
Goodbye, Teach!
You can find me at the beach…
Or in the park or at the pool
Or any place that isn’t school.

Goodbye, quizzes!
Bye, reports!
Hello days packed full of sports
And days when I’m just lazybones
While eating melty ice cream cones.

Goodbye, homework —
Lunchroom, too.
There’s so, so much I wanna do.
I know the school year flew on past…
But please, please summer — last and last.
