Eagle County Schools Superintendent Sandra Smyser rewrote a couple of classic holiday songs:

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the year, in a yellow school bus sleigh,



Through Eagle County we go, laughing all the way;

Bells on schools ring, making spirits bright,

What fun it is to practice and sing a concert song tonight!

School bells ring, school bells ring, school bells ring all day!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a yellow school bus sleigh.



School bells ring, school bells ring, school bells ring all day!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a yellow school bus sleigh.

A year or two ago, we thought we’d cast 3B,

To see if we could build, new schools for children to see;

The vote was big and bright; bringing new books and shelves;

We sit in new, beautiful buildings, and happy are the elves! O

School bells ring, school bells ring, school bells ring all day!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a yellow school bus sleigh.

School bells ring, school bells ring, school bells ring all day!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a yellow school bus sleigh.

Let it Snow!

Oh, the snow is finally falling,

And the holiday season’s calling,

On the few runs open we’ll go,

Need more Snow! Need more Snow! Need more Snow!

School doesn’t yet show signs of stopping,

But we all have started our shopping,

And there’s only three weeks to go,

Need more Snow! Need more Snow! Need more Snow!

Although homework is still around,

You know it’s still time to learn,

Vacation days will soon abound,

Skiing and relaxing you’ll earn.

Enjoy your fun times playing,

And remember what your teacher’s saying,

Read and study so your brain will grow,

Need more Snow! Need more Snow! Need more Snow!

Sandra B. Smyser, Ph.D., is the superintendent of the Eagle County School District.
