Hello Everyone!!
  I hope everyone did something fun over The Martin Luther King Break!!  4th grade classes were in charge of our MLK assembly!  Ian, from our class wrote an exceptional poem, and recited it during the program!  His picture was in the Iron County Today Newspaper!!
                                                                      "Your Dreams "
                                                          By Ian Joseph Gutierrez-Avalos

                                           Do they sparkle in the sun, or disappear in the dark?
                                                Maybe even crush, like the ones in Harlem!
                                                               Or, decay like rotting flesh!
                               Or, wash away like a bottle in the ocean, never to be found again!
                                                       Maybe they burn like a fire in the sun!
                          Or, drowned in a lie, like a bottle in the ocean that was never found again!
                                                                     There's more to life!
                                               But, what's most important, are your dreams!
                                                                      So, hold on to them!
                                                             Don't let them drown or burn!
                                                          Keep on dreaming and dreaming!
                                                         Make them strong and float along!
                                                         Just like Martin Luther King did!!!

Our Student Teacher's name is Mrs. Maughn!!  She will be with us for another five weeks!!  Welcome Mrs. Maughn!!
