was eating a muffin

because she moved there.

Friday Poem of the Week

SCORES Spring 2012 Dunlap Maple 2012_04-13 007

Dunlap Girls SCORES
(Who We Are Cheer)
Spring 2012

We are Dunlap Girls SCORES
We play soccer galore.

We’re like light,
We shine bright,
We are noticeable and always in sight.

We have a lot of brains and when we play soccer
We drive you insane.

That’s all you hear
The crowd can’t help but cheer!

College Kicks: Today at Seattle Pacific University

SCORES Spring 2012 Dunlap 2012_05-10 030

Today America Scores Seattle will bus 160 third, fourth and fifth graders from 5 Seattle high-need public elementary schools to Seattle Pacific University to tour the campus, train with the SPU soccer teams, and participate in a Q&A with college students.

College Kicks is an annual SCORES event that works to inspire SCORES poet-athletes to dream of higher education, and the experience will show them an educational path they can make their own and work to achieve.

We are very grateful to the Seattle Pacific University Men's and Women's soccer teams for hosting us again this year.  Without strong partnerships like these, America SCORES Seattle would not be able to continue to provide our high-quality free program to Seattle's at-risk youth.

Friday Poem of the Week

The bird.
By Tetiana M., 4th Grade
Maple Elementary School

A bird lands on my finger.
It whistles a happy tune.
When its song is over,
I realize I am happy too!
