On Wednesday, April 17, Sierra Bonita had a Dr. Seuss celebration.  For this celebration, a poem contest was held.  The judges were Chris Baird-the person who created a local newspaper called Serve Daily; James Redford who is a producer, director, and scriptwriter; and Nate Pyfer a musician and music producer.  About 400 poems were entered in the poem contest, but only 9 were chosen as finalists.  The three over all winners were, 3rd place Julianna Matteis, 2nd place Helen Linford, and 1st place Brianna Farnsworth.  After the winners were announced, the finalists read their poems to the school.  Then a song and dance production, “Seussical the Musical,” began.  The kids participating in it looked like newly painted Dr. Seuss characters.  The scenery took us inside of Dr. Seuss books like “Horton Hears a Who” and “The Lorax”.  After the performance, the 3rd grade sang “Read Me a Memory.”  Then our honored guest, the Utah state schools superintendent, Martell Menlove, gave a short speech about reading.  Everyone enjoyed this colorful celebration and had fun on this special day.

Reading is fun and that is a fact of each little thing and every knick-knack.

You can read about ducks and about gooses

You can read about octopuses and about moose’s.

Girls can read novels and fun little stories.

Boys can read about monsters and books about floorings.

You can read about anything, anytime, anywhere.

You can read about The Turtle and the Hare.

Reading is fun and that’s all I can say

Now I’m just going to sit and just read all the….

The Climb

by Helen Linford

I have always hated

When I need to climb,

So I tried to stall,

But I knew it was time.


So I started up,

Already thinking

How treacherous

It was climbing.


I put one hand

In front of the other

Starting to breathe

A little heavier


I was half of

The way up.

Then I slipped!

Why’d I mess up?


Because of that slip

I went down a way.

This day for me

Is looking very gray.


I was breathing so hard

Could I go any further?

So I said to myself

“Should I go slower?”


But which one should I choose;

Getting up a bit slower,

Or (even if I might die!)

Getting to the top quicker?


I decided to go slower.

I definitely could not stand

Going quick, because my heart

Sounded like a drum in a band!


I was almost there

When my left foot fell!

Luckily, my right foot

Was on there well!


My heart beating very, very hard

Onto the top I start pulling myself.

I remembered I had asked for help,

But was told, “Do it yourself.”


Even though no one

Else probably cares,

I finally made it

To the top of the stairs!

The Very Amazing Creatures

by Brianna Farnsworth

Come hear about these creatures and their amazing features

And sometimes they like to sneeze like very small Sneechers

There is a tall Nunnel, and a small Nunnel

They live, yes they live in a very small tunnel

They only come out of their hole, I’m afraid

When a soft kind of music is gently played

There is also a Buzz for Buzz-B-Ba-Tuzz

It’s a very tall creature for a small baby buzz

You’ll be very surprised where he is found

Once you start to poke around

There is a Likk for Likker who lives in the weeds

And spend their whole life juggling cinnamon seeds

You can find a great, many number

In the month of amazing Octumber

And last but not least there is pickled-spoons

Who doodle and doodle in fat desert dunes

Just doodling, doodling very sad tunes

About peppermints, peanuts, pickles, and prunes

 (Mrs. Cox 4th grade)
