Basketball Coach

The bag topper for volunteer basketball coaches and assistant coaches …

A “Thank You” for Coaching our Basketball Season!!

POPCORN …You were always “popping up” new ideas to help us play our very best!

M&M’s … You made our basketball season such a “memorable” time and encouraged us to “make the most” of our abilities!

NUTS … Whenever things were “nuts”, you kept us all focused and guided us when we didn’t understand. Know that we are “nuts” about you!

PRETZELS … You taught us to “stick” to our opponents and to “knot” (not) get discouraged, but to keep practicing and keep on trying!

BasketBALLS … You gave us a “well-rounded” grasp of the fundamentals, and while we have more to learn, we had a “ball” on the team!

SPORTZ Crackers … You gave so much of your time, your talents and of your heart for us and were such a “sport” to coach us! Our sincere admiration and respect to you!

(The “basketballs” were chocolate balls wrapped in orange foil with the “basketball lines). The “Sportz” crackers are a new cheddar snack crackers from Nabisco in shapes of basketballs, rollarblades, tennis rackets, footballs, baseball gloves and basketballs).

Variation: The gift could center on “Kix” cereal for a soccer gift.

Lovingly … ~Dori~

Bus Driver Poem
Special Person Author:Carolyn Henry

She is a special person, I’m sure you’ll all agree
She’s the kind of person, I wanted her to be

She is very responsible, in caring for your child
She won’t let them be rowdy, and they can’t be wild

She drives the bus they ride on, each and every day
she makes sure they are careful, on the bus when they play

She does your job for you, when you send them out the door
They are hers to care for, Until they are home once more.

Do you ever think about her, and the job she does for you
Do you ever say Thank you, for watching all this crew

She’s not in it for the pay, there’s not enough for that,
She wants to take care of them, and that is where its at

Do you put yourself in her place, as you send them out the door
Do you know she worries, until they’re home once more

That is your most precious possession, she is holding in her hand
She knows this and wishes, someone would understand

She is your School Bus Driver but don’t you sell her short
She is caring for your children, and she’s doing it from her heart.

Poem for bus drivers

Heroes
There are heroes in our land today that never receive any recognition
Some of these are a child’s first acquaintance of education.
Now a teacher might be the first one who comes to your mind,
But I speak of the bus driver for which the kids wait in line.

For a moment, put your self in the bus driver’s shoes,
And I’m sure you will find that it’s a job you might not want to choose.
Just think what it would be like to baby sit for sixty kids or better,
And remember you must chauffeur this bus load of kids regardless of the weather.

I must admit, to be in front of a classroom with 20-30 kids wouldn’t be a picnic,
But to drive 60 kids over icy roads would set my nerves on edge and make my stomach sick.
A school bus driver is like the postman and must go regardless of rain, snow, gloom, and darkest of night,
But no postman ever had to have 60 kids, clean up their mess, or break up a fight.

A child can have a bad day at school without any warning,
But can be forgotten when a bus driver says, ” Have a good evening, I’ll see you in the morning”.
Ask any student, what heroes of theirs never received any fame,
And I’ll bet a bus driver will be among those that they name.
