School, Welcome, Back to School

A Circle of Friends

We've joined together as classmates
as the new year begins...
A year full of learning
while we become friends.
We'll share and be kind
as we work and play.
And our friendship will grow
with each passing day.


The First Day of School

I wonder if my drawing will be as good as theirs
I wonder if they'll like me, or just be full of stares
I wonder if my teacher will look like mom or gram
And I wonder if my puppy will wonder where I am.

Aileen Fisher


Backpack

On my back a pack I carry
In it, all my treasures.
It's what I need
So I can be
One class higher!

Crayons, ruler, scissors too,
And yes a little Elmer's glue
Paper, pencils, in my bag…
Wonder what made mom so sad?

Trapper keeper, nice and neat
Will it really stay this clean?

On my back a pack I carry
In it, all my treasures!

Today I'll be
Just watch and see
One class higher!

Shelley Plum


Welcome to school!
May this school year bring
You happiness galore,
And may you enjoy it-
Right to the core!


Welcome Acrostic

When you
Enter this
Little room
Consider yourself
One of the special
Members of a group who
Enjoy working and learning.


Welcome
submitted by Amy Tevelthuis

Welcome children, I'm glad you're here.
We're all going to have a wonderful year!
We'll draw and we'll write,
We'll sing and we'll play,
We'll paint and we'll build,
And learn new things each day!


The leaves are falling
One by one.
Summer's over
School's begun.


Welcome to school!
May this school year bring
You happiness galore,
And may you enjoy it-
Right to the core!


Back To School

Today I hurry off to school,
To work and learn and play.
I'm in a brand new grade this year.
What a happy day!


Welcome

September is here
And so is fall.
So welcome children
Welcome all.
I hope vacation
Was real fun.
And that you're glad
School has begun.
