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.
