Cascade Elementary School...If It Could Speak
1928-1992

Through my corridors, since years ago,
And on my elated playground,
Many young souls, with love aglow,
Each year found me around.

Together my students, during tender years,
Numbered many... as if self-sown,
But time has a way with smiles and tears
And soon I shall be gone.

As the years fly by, past students will tell,
You'll find many things anew,
But I know many hearts with love will swell
For one another....and me too.

Someday if you happen to pass this way,
I hope you'll take a look,
And remember me as in yesterday,
Where you played and cracked a book.

Remember your principals, teachers, and friends
And be proud of everyone.
Time determines when everything ends,
So rejoice...there's time for fun.
