When our thoughts turn to giving.

Kids make gifts with hands

for mom, dad, sister, brother.

An elf factory.

- Miss Hari

 

Bird Cookies make mess

on floor of purple room. Then

yarn, thread, fabric, loops.

(Thank you, Miss Lara, for keeping our school so clean!)

If I hear another haiku

I will be real mad.

Every soul sees some

light in the darkest dark time

of Christmas happy.

Deep snow is so fun.

Haiku, haiku, haiku, boo.

Haiku, haiku, boo.

I am frozen to the bone.

It is cold out here.
Why is it so cold out here?
I do not like cold.

See, it is winter.
See snow fall like a blanket.
It is warmer here.

Marshmallows swirling
Hot chocolate kind of day
Cookies and presents

"Snow"
Snow falls from the sky
Brrrrr! it is quite cold outside
Down a hill I go.

"Snowflakes"
Snowflakes are falling
Each one of them is different
But they all fall down. 

- Leah


I had a nightmare
It's the day before Christmas
Santa Claus was kidnapped.

The snow is falling
the carolers are coming
Cocoa time is here.

Frost is in the air
Lights are on the Christmas tree
Snowflake on my tongue.

For love of science
Einstein envisioned it all.
Well, we reckon so.

the leaves change color
skeletons of trees remain
we make fall tree art

draw a self portrait, it's work
the challenge is fun

Do it for yourself

And your community too.

Service Learning time!

 

You're not on your own

We're all in this together.

Thus you serve yourself.

 

When I was a boy

I wanted to save the world.

The world is too big.

 

At Blue Mountain School

We learn to serve, serve to learn.

That's understanding.

 



We trust that you smiled
Upon reading our poems.
to your pals. 
 
Thank you friends and kin.  
The folks at Blue Mountain School
Wish, "Happy New Year!"
