March 3rd………..”TELL US ABOUT WHAT REPORT CARDS WERE LIKE WHEN YOU WERE A FIRST GRADER IN THE KIESTER, MINNESOTA PUBLIC SCHOOL.”
POEM – “Never Fear With Mrs. Wiehr” by N. Elliott Noorlun
I got off the bus, With nary a fuss,
As I stared at that tall brick abode.
This First Grade boy, Was thrilled with joy,
As my school supplies I towed.
First room on the right, And, ohhh what a sight,
Right next to those massive stairs.
Which carried “big kids”, With brains under lids,
Upstairs to sit in big chairs.
After Pledge Of Allegiance, Our teacher so sweet,
Had a show-n-tell from each child.
To share who we were, And the past summer’s blur,
I was smitten, For our teacher was mild.
As the school year progressed, I took First Grade tests,
For my alphabet, Colors and such.
And because of her love, That was sent from above,
I loved Mrs. Wiehr ohh so much!!!
She showed so much grace, To my little boy face,
That when our report cards came,
I took them all home, Under sweet family dome,
To show Mom and Dad with no shame.
Though I wasn’t the brightest, I felt not the slightest,
Digress from the love that she showed,
No matter the subject, That year was the best,
And her loving allegiance I’ve owed.
A reminder to all, When dealing with small,
Little children, Your heart motives counts,
After many a year, Our dear Mrs. Wiehr,
In this old “First Grader’s” heart still mounts…..with love!!! 😉
