St. Thomas The Apostle School Kids Sing About The Cooperstown Hall Of Fame – Reading, Writing and Rhyming [AUDIO]

Here's their song in case you don't want to read the rest, but I invite you to, and also to make comments at the bottom of the article.  (Congratulate the kids -they'd love to read it!)

This was yet another repeat performance for me. I believe this was my third time at this fantastic school in the Delmar area.  In fact, it turns out that these were the same kids that I've seen in the past!  They had just come back from a field trip to the Cooperstown Hall of Fame and wanted to write a song about it.  No problem!
