It's All About Summertime!


Let’s start with promotion, cookouts, and sleepovers with friends

Then beaches, ice cream, and bike rides to no end

Hide-and-seek, freeze tag, honeydew, and plums

Fourth of July and family reunions—now that’s how summer is done!

Pool parties, popsicles, and leisurely reading

While taking a much-needed rest to catch up on our sleeping

Because summertime is fun time which we enjoy the most

And anxiously wait for all year from coast to coast

Did I mention the County Fair, summer camps, and trips to the zoo?

And remember to keep up with your reading because that’s part of summer, too!

As our school year winds to a close know that you will all be truly missed

But get ready for next year with learning at the top of your list!

SCHOOL COUNSELOR’S MESSAGE

It's All About Summertime was lovingly written by Ms. DeJohnette for all of my wonderful Toler Elementary School students. I truly enjoyed being your counselor for the 2021-22 school year and hope that we will see each other again. Thank you so very much for teaching me as I taught all of you and know that I will never forget the laughter and the fun that I shared with you as we moved through this school year together. And please always remember that each and every one of you has greatness within to share with the world. Have a safe, happy, and well-read summer! Now off to my favorite place in the whole wide world—the beach!
