Twas the week before Christmas and all through HFE,

anticipating Christmas, Students and teachers were full of glee.

The 2nd grade elves, a little mischief helped make,

but the student party on Friday was awesome and great.

And I and my staff and colleagues with cheer,

celebrated the end of half the school year.

And I heard them all yell as they left our long hall,

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas Y'all.
