Public school

Back in the seventies when plaid was the thing 
bright colors were typical, as were tans and browns 
The pants of children, both boys and girls 
Toys made by Playskool, Play-doh, and Fisher Price. 

Summer picnics, family and friends gather 
to celebrate the season of the summer and the holidays 
Birthday parties with moon-bounce houses 
Clowns come in plaid pants recovered from the seventies. 

Math classes, art classes, all grades 
Grids and maps, primary colors, color wheels 
Data entry, following patterns, coding 
Shapes, colors, directions, codes all in grade school until graduation. 

Enter public schools 
Children become teens then
Graduate high school.
