Song Lyrics –

No New Year’s Day to celebrate 
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away 
No first of spring 
No song to sing 
In fact here’s just another ordinary day

No April rain 
No flowers bloom 
No wedding Saturday within the month of June 
But what it is, is something true 
Made up of these three words that I must say to you

I just called to say I love you 
I just called to say how much I care 
I just called to say I love you 
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

No summer’s high 
No warm July 
No harvest moon to light one tender August night 
No autumn breeze 
No falling leaves 
Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies

No Libra sun 
No Halloween 
No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring 
But what it is, though old so new 
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do

I just called to say I love you 
I just called to say how much I care, I do 
I just called to say I love you 
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

I just called to say I love you 
I just called to say how much I care, I do 
I just called to say I love you 
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart, 
of my heart

I just called to say I love you 
I just called to say how much I care, I do 
I just called to say I love you 
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart, 
baby of my heart

Description of the Ribbon Segment that the Children Made – The children painted butcher paper and bubble wrap. Then they made loops to connect the two materials.

The Hummingbirds learning group prepared for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

They were joined by their parent and family member chaperones and crossed the street from our SF City Building Center to join the other children, teachers, and families in the CA State Building Center’s Great Hall.

The group triumphantly entered to their music and carrying their hand-made sign.

They took their place and watched the other learning groups enter with their signs and music.

The actual ribbon cutting by City-County Supervisor Matt Haney was exciting and opened up the big screen on the Festival of Learning Website!
