6th Grade Poem


6th grade rushes on,
The work grows harder,
And the days grow longer,
But our friends help us on the way,
As do the teachers,
Mrs. Franklin (the project queen) ,
Mrs. Gunter (the expert experimenter) ,
Mrs. Floyd (the pop quiz thriller) ,
And Mrs. Adams (the homework-giving fanatic) ,
All friends together and together as one we stand,
The homework grows,
The dances come,
Grades rise and fall,
Yet it’s fun,
Fun to be educated by inspiring people,
And become inspiring as well,
The projects grow further apart,
As do the mistakes we make,
So let’s take a moment and think...
Think back on our past and recollect
the experiences we have had and will always cherish.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
