How would you like to cool off in this heat?

Or even let your taste buds perk up with a treat?

If you are looking for a way to do both with a smile,

Then an ice cream or two is worthwhile.

There is no reason to not enjoy dessert.

It’s like having frozen yogurt.

When you see your friends with ice cream,

Don’t sit by and daydream.

You’d think it cost a lot to stay cool.

Whoever told you that is cruel.

A dollar is all you’d need,

For ice cream indeed.

So stop by the lunch tables at noon to one.

Bring a smile and some fun.

Bring a friend or two,

Enjoy a treat with them woohoo.

We’ll see you on Wednesdays and Fridays to enjoy,

A treat that’s better than poi.

Please support our Academic Decathlon team by purchasing some sweet treats that help you beat the heat!  See the flyer for more details.
