St. Patrick’s Day Parade
by Noah and Mouse

OG SP Parade 3This was our first time in a parade. Our favorite part was being watched by lots of people.
We walked and waved. We had lunch first, and then practiced our drums, and then we
played the drums the entire parade.

There were a lot of Irish dancers and we marched to Carlos Santana songs. We saw many fire trucks and firemen. We wore a lot of green, and Noah even put green shoelaces in his shoes!

We are excited to do it again next year.

Poem of the Month
Written by Shelly

I like the Sacramento Kings
To stay in Sacramento.
The Kings are very good.
Why are the Kings good?
They have new players.
The Kings are cool.
They win games at home.
