Going to Middle School

by Robin Montgomery   Jun 19, 2013

It seems like yesterday, when it all began,
you entered 4th grade and I asked you to stand.

We said the Pledge of Allegiance almost every day
and memorized our math facts along the way,

I watched you grow, and learn new things
and today you will leave and spread your wings

It's not a time to feel sad and cry,
Hatchery Hill School will miss you, and so will I,

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and smiles,
Now off to the Middle School to see all the piles

Books, and binders, and papers galore,
I know you'll be happy and learn so much more

I wanted to leave you with a few words of advice,
Never give up, and always be nice.

Written for Hatchery Hill School's
4th Grade Graduating Class

    I wish my teacher would have written my classmates and me a poem.
    I like the emotion and the feelings that come from this poem.

    It's always tough to say good bye to students, specially after spending an entire year with them. But it's rewarding to know that they pass their year and that they are moving on.

    Thanks for sharing it.
