ATTA EAGLE AWARD

It’s time for Atta Eagle to fly away,

And he’s soaring down the Music Suite hallway!


In Geoffrey Gibbon’s classroom he will land,

Where beautiful CMS voices sound so grand!


Not only does Geoffrey lead our chorus classes well,

He’s also our amazing TTL!


An awesome video he created for Veterans Day,

And he’s about to be a new dad - a baby girl’s on the way!


Thank you, Geoffrey for all that you do!

Our CMS family is so thankful for you!


~ Lacey Hallman
