Welcome Summer! #SOL17


Welcome Summer! 
Cluttered classroom starts to clear out.
Report cards folded and envelopes stuffed.
A year of learning together reaches the finish
And we prepare to undo the ties that connected
from September to June. 
Goodbyes are in the air as the artwork comes down
Name tags ripped off desks and lockers.
An ending.

Summer is a beginning.
Alarm clock-less days and camp drop offs.
Reading and learning and dreaming 
Planning and envisioning 
Breaks at the beach, late sunsets
Twilight and fireflies.
Smores and sunscreen.

Exhale. 

Happy Summer, Teacher Friends!
