A summer farewell

Dear Stephen King,

As our school year comes to a close we extend to you, a so long for now.  Our students are off for their summer vacation, some will be working on family farms, others will be working around town but they all will enjoy those sweet warm summer days where September appears to be far off. 

                Our school hopes that you enjoyed all the letters, artwork and videos that we have sent you over the school year.  We all had great fun in seeking you to visit our school.  At last, we never heard from you.  We have not given up hope, when our school year starts in September we will be back at it.  We are working under the idea that “It is kind of fun to do the impossible.”

                We hope that you have a great summer and enjoy lots of baseball.

Dear Stephen King,

Some students decided to rewrite popular songs to persuade you to visit us.  This group decided to shoot a video to.  We hope you enjoy this song.  We had a lot of fun creating it and the video! Below are the lyrics to the song. 

Stephen King Rap!

By: Bailey, Allison, Maddy, and Mary-Kate

This one is for the author in Bangor,
He's got best sellers sellin' out all the stores
When he come up in our school we be racin' up
We got to see him first so we savin' up!
They shrill, they thrill, they sometimes kill
These novels got suspense, they be givin' you a chill!
We read, we saw, we now in awe
These books are so great; they ain't never got a flaw!

He's an author from the states, states. That SRHS awaits, waits.
Open up the gates, gates. This be feelin' like fate, fate.
You're the kind of dude we are lookin' for.
And yes, errybody needs a mentor!
I said s'cuse me you're a hell of a guy
I mean my, my, my, my you write the books that I by.
I mean, don't be shy, the queen stopped by
All we need now is the king by her side, OH!

Yes we did, yes we did, somebody please tell him who SRHS is
We are the Sonics; we read dem books up, come on up, talk this town up.

Steve you got our school goin' insane,
Reading all the time, you be fillin' our brains
Steve you got those books...
Steve you write dem books!

Dear Stephen King,

I wanted to share this YouTube video with you.  Some of our students made it as part of an English project.  It is a parody on a popular song.  The students reworked the song to make it about being from Sussex. I hope that it gives you a good chuckle.  I also hope that it helps to persuade you to visit us at SRHS in the fall.   From Sussex and I Know It!
