Jeff's Jukebox: A-6
The greatest “school is out” song, “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper. Every year, right on schedule, the song would be played – full blast – on the campus intercom system at my alma mater, Del Campo High School.
And school is indeed out, for both sons now. This morning we attended son #2’s 8th grade promotion ceremony, and it was nice, although “8th Grade Promotion” is a tradition that I’m not certain is really necessary. If you celebrate everything, after a while I think you begin to lose sight of the things that are really important.
But next year at this time, son #1 will be graduating from high school. Now that, even in this day and age, qualifies as a milestone.
