Grattan Students Mark Open Schoolyard with Poem

Families at Grattan Elementary School enjoy having their school playground open on weekends. Many of the students use the yard regularly on weekends, and appreciate it so much they wrote a poem about it. Check it out, and join us at Grattan this Saturday, November 7, at 11 am.

We're Opening Our Yard Today

We're opening our yard today; Let's go down for fun and play.

Get a ball, catch and throw.

Grab a rope and skip a few.

Hit the bars and grab and pull.

Take a hoop and twirl and swirl.

Get some chalk and scribble and scrabble.

Climb the stairs, slip and slide till you're at the bottom of the ride.

The whistle blows, we pause the fun, now it's time to get work done.
