Nope. Top notch. 
Every other day was and will be second place. 
Today was incredibly special. A smile on each face. 
It clearly displayed that we at MESA 
               do not just teach square roots,
We are, indeed, a family. Unique to each one:
               from the teachers to the recruits.
When we saw Santa greeting us,
we knew the day was going to start off right
His reindeer and sled were all lit up.
Every car going by got quite a sight!

From there the day just keep getting better. 
There was serious science and learning don't you know.
It was not all sugar, trans fatty acids, and more sugar.
We had some holiday chromatography to go with the snow.

Science jingle

More you say, how can it be?
We had only started, can't you see.
There were marshmallows, sugar plums, and icing for houses divine
Each team made a something that would surely blow your mind.

Tired from our tasks, 
  we sat down to eat our feast,
Like the Who's in Who-ville
 eating their roast beast.  
Touched we were,
  we did not know what to say,
When all on their own
  our students started to pray.

After a romp outside, we moved on from the snow
And we wanted to see if they could make that cookie go
From their heads to their mouths quite a sight to see
They laughed and ate cookies all quite joyfully.

The Cookie

More Cookies

For me, myself, I honestly just gotta say
We saved the best for the end of the day.
It was a rendering of a winter holiday tale
From the big guy from the South who just could not fail.

Mr. Wheeler's How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Lest I forget to mention quickly, I'll try not to tarry
We also got news that on Monday Ms. Myers will marry

There was so much that happened.
I mean it. It is true!
Thank goodness for Mrs. Barry
And her photo review.

MESA Hoopla

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight—
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

Oh my...can you imagine?
We not even halfway done!
So much to do.
Do you think we'll have fun?
