Just For Today

Just for today
I will play
Hooky
From school.

With 25 students

We will
Watch
2 of our own,
Plus 900 others,
Be recognized for
Excellence.

Amazed and Astonished,
I will sit and listen and
Watch
As young men and women
Prove
That practice and determination
Brings rewards,
But mostly
They bring
Self-Satisfaction and Pride.


Congratulations to Grace and Jordan--All-State Performers!

  4. Maybe hooky from a job but not from being a proud parent - good for you and your kids.
