What they'd truly love to be 

Last Friday was a first for Cheyenne Mountain Charter Academy. Kindergarten teacher Cindee Will explained: "We're so focused academically here that we rarely do this kind of thing."

She was referring to Hot Dog Day, a celebration that included all the hot dogs you could eat, a $10,000 check-passing ceremony and a visit by Oscar Mayer's famed Wienermobile.

All of this came to pass because Will's class submitted to Oscar Mayer their award-winning jingle called "The Kindergarten Hot Dog Song":

Oh, I love to be a Kindergarten hot dog/ That is what I truly love to be/ Because I'm a Kindergarten Hot Dog/ I can write my cursive ABCs.

Will said a rough draft of the song was first written by a parent-student combination from her afternoon class. Then the students, ages 5 and 6, tinkered with the words a bit to make them fit the song. Her afternoon class had already dubbed themselves the Hot-Doggers, so they combined their impressive academic achievement of writing in cursive with their class name.

Needless to say, the song worked like a charm and the class relished every minute of their time in the spotlight. No pun intended.
