Thought for the Day:
“It’s not all that difficult, folks, to be compassionate when you’ve been the beneficiary of compassion in your lowest moments … because when you know how much it meant to you, you know how much it mattered. It’s not hard to be compassionate.” ~ Joe Biden

Back to School

Back to School

Dear students, the summer has ended.
The school year at last has begun.
But this year is totally different.
I promise we’ll only have fun.

We won’t study any mathematics,
and recess will last all day long.
Instead of the pledge of allegiance,
we’ll belt out a rock-and-roll song.

We’ll only play games in the classroom.
You’re welcome to bring in your toys.
It’s okay to run in the hallways.
It’s great if you make lots of noise.

For homework, you’ll play your Nintendo.
You’ll have to watch lots of T.V.
For field trips we’ll go to the movies
and get lots of candy for free.

The lunchroom will only serve chocolate
and triple fudge sundaes supreme.
Yes, that’s what I heard from my teacher
before I woke up from my dream.

–Kenn Nesbitt

How we all wish if this was true ..Right? Do I hear a roaring YESS!! [ I join too 🙂 😉 ]

But anyways for the matter of fact I know that our school rocks the way it is and all kids have a gala time while learning even math.

Today was no different. The entry to the class and finding way to their seat  was no less than a heroic mission. It made students tickle their brain and twist their bodies. Have a look..
