Condit fourth-graders mark snowfall with haiku

by Mick Rhodes |

After a rare snow flurry at Condit Elementary School last week, fourth grade teacher Summer Bonner recently tasked her students at the north Mountain Avenue school to write haiku about the experience.

The resultant creativity was just too impressive and cute to resist, so the Courier asked Bonner for permission to share them with our readers. Here is your collective dose of fourth grade artistry:

And when joy filled inside me,

I sprinted outside
