The bell tolls for me
As far as I know, the final school bell has rung in every school in Bureau County. For area students, the thought of homework is a million miles away; getting up early to catch the school bus isn’t going to happen; and the daily routine of school is just a memory. That’s right. Like Alice Cooper once sang, “School’s out for the summer.”
I got into a traffic situation the other day over by Lincoln Elementary School in Princeton. Normally, I try to avoid getting mixed up in all the hoopla of students boarding buses, walking home or waiting for their adult to pick them up after their school day. Not thinking though, I turned onto South Euclid Avenue, and the next thing I knew, I found myself waiting for quite some time as children were leaving the building and boarding school buses to take them home.
Most of the children carried large bags or backpacks with them — clearly filled with the remnants of their school year. While I don’t think the staff who was monitoring the mass exit that day would mind me telling you they looked a bit bedraggled, I couldn’t help but notice the expressions on the kids’ faces ... Truly, it was utter bliss.
