The Last Day of School

Today is the Last Day of School for Katelynn and Sara. Here is a funny poem I found online:

From the book “What I Did on My Summer Vacation”/Illustrated by Stephen Carpenter

The Last Day of School

Summer vacation is starting today.
The teachers are shouting out, “Hip, hip, hooray!”
Our grumpy old principal grins ear to ear
and runs down the hall shouting, “Summer is here!”
The buses come early. (They’re usually late.)
The teachers say, “Hurry up! Pack up! Don’t wait!”
The school bell is ringing. There’s no time to chat.
The whole school is emptied in one second flat.
Everyone’s happy. Our spirits are flying
Except for our parents – they are sulking and crying.
