A “Thank You” poem
written by a P.S. 185 parent.

The kids of K-254 of P.S. 185 are never a bore.
They are so alive , full of jive
And so much more.
Under the watchful care of clever Ms. Clark,
she can teach them to bark.
Sing like a lark or growl like a grizzly bear.
A class full of love, they rise above
and give me hugs.
Draw me pictures of bugs; into my heart they shove
their sweet faces and untied shoelaces.
Eight sweet smart kids; busting out of their
lids, so much joy, so much fun.
These kids of K-254 always leave me wanting more.
