Gatzert Gardeners

by: Jasmine N.

Bailey Gatzert Elementary

We are gardeners
We dig, weed and plant
We get sweaty, thirsty and hungry
Planting seeds was like digging into the earth, way deep down
The soil was like mooshy ice-cream
In the ground I saw bugs, weeds and dead plants
I think the lavender will be like light purple and smell really fresh
Planting a garden felt like making our community a better place for people to enjoy
It will be greener!

Friday Poem of the Week!

Today's Friday Poem of the Week is titled "A Recipe For Me" by Anthony W. of Highland Park Elementary! Great job Anthony!

"A Recipe For Me"
by: Anthony W, 5th Grader
Highland Park Elementary

One dash of love
and a tiny pinch of God
10 tablespoons of adventure
30 gallons of video games
chop up 10 fingers and throw ‘em in
also 10 toes
mix in organs
throw in a team
get a bulldozer and pour in
