Happenings around school we want to share!

 

 

Sophomore English Honors class students recently studied and wrote acrostic poems.  In an acrostic poem the first letter of every line spells out a word or phrase.

Mr. Flugga wrote this acrostic poem as he sat in the hospital with his daughter following her operation to provide an example as well as share a message with his students.

 

Breathing

I sit in this room and I ponder.

Maybe today is the day that she will improve.

I wonder what day it is.

Seems as if all of the days just run together.

Seconds become minutes, minutes become hours, but they are all the same.

Yesterday she twitched her foot and fluttered her eyelids.

Oxygen still being pumped into her lungs by some magical apparatus.

Until now, I never realized how much I hated the sound of silence.

Great things are on the horizon though.

Uplifting thoughts and prayers get us from one day to the next.

You guys are never far from my thoughts.

Soon I’ll be back and I will stand before you once more. But until then, know this..
