Schools out for Summer!

Schools out for Summer!

I picked up my daughter today the last day of school year '06-'07, and I ended up dropping two of her friends off and picking two more up later. I had teenager all over the place today!

I thought the kids would be thrilled that it's the last day of school, but no, they walked out off the school compus like they were in a daze.

I asked Janae one of kids that I was taking home "wasn't she glad that school was over?"

and she said that "(she) was wondering was it really? (She) didn't feel like it was."

And she was a senior she and Arma are graduating tomorrow night.

Poor thing.

Is our school system too hard now? That makes me wonder.


The year that I graduated was in 1979 (I guess that kinda dates me) When we finished on the last day of school we were so happy we cheered, we shouted, and we sang!

And this is the song we sang;
Schools out
sung by Alice Cooper

Well we got no choice
All the girls and boys
Makin all that noise
'Cause they found new toys
Well we can't salute ya
Can't find a flag
If that don't suit ya
That's a drag

School's out for summer
School's out forever
School's been blown to pieces

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher's dirty looks

Well we got no class
And we got no principles
And we got no innocence
We can't even think of a word that rhymes

School's out for summer
School's out forever
School's been blown to pieces

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher's dirty looks

Out for summer
Out till fall
We might not go back at all

School's out forever
School's out for summer
School's out with fever
School's out completely

Elcie graduated from 8th grade today. The schools let out tomorrow.

Elcie will play hookey along with most of the 8th grade. Between her field trip on Wednesday and graduation, she's worn out.

We sang that too, and I'm a bit older than you. Here's hoping they all have a good summer break.

Hi Ann,

Can't say that I blame her, I think I would be too. I had watched the high school graduation and I'm tired.

Hi Willowtree,
