The Teachers Jumped Out of the Windows
Adapted from a poem by Kenn Nesbitt
The teachers jumped out of the windows.
The principal ran for the door.
All the SNA’s bolted.
They’re not coming back anymore.
The caretaker, hollering madly,
escaped out the door of the gym.
The after-school teachers shouted
and ran out the door after him.
The windows were closed, the blinds pulled down
And the lights turned off in haste,
while all of the students looked puzzled
as staff members scurried and raced.
We’d never seen anything like it.
But, still, it was pretty darn cool
to see all the staff so excited
to leave on the last day of school.
by the children of Second Class
On the last day of school,
The older kids streamed out the door,
The Infants flew out the windows,
So excited they flopped on the floor.
The students flooded the doors,
The teachers looked on in shock,
The caretaker was so surprised,
That he left the keys in the lock!
Eldon’s P.E. class backflipped outside,
And sprinted away from the teachers,
Caitríona was amazed,
To see the kids acting like wild creatures.
‘Yeeesssss!’ shouted the parents,
As their children ran out to meet them,
They danced and hugged each other,
To welcome and to greet them.
The kids were having a party,
Looking forward to the summer,
And they thought to themselves, “oh no!”
September will be a bummer.
