Don't oversleep and miss the bus-
because you will be late.
That's a habit teachers generally
Never tell your friends at school
that you just ate a fly.
They are sure to tease you,
and wonder when you'll die.
Never call your teacher a name
when she is not near you.
Teachers' ears are excellent,
and they can always hear you.
And if your report card turns out badly,
don't blame it on your buddy.
Kiss up to your both parents, quick,
before they make you study.

I could use some grown up help in cutting some paper for a writing project. If you’re willing, please let me know.
We will have our school Sing-a-Round in December and will start learning songs for that very soon. If you would not like your child to participate in learning Christmas/Hanukkah songs, please let me know.
