Brothers Students Share ‘I Am From’ Poems at Board Meeting

Brothers students share ‘I Am From’ poems at board meeting

“I am from a small ranch in the middle of nowhere.” “I am from a little hunting town.” “I am from a dusty dirt road in Brothers.” After being inspired by a poetry contest on OPB, the Brothers Elementary students each wrote an individual poem which reflects their lives out on ranches in Brothers and Hampton. The poems definitely have strong leanings toward local topics like family life, chickens, goats and other animals, being outside, combining in the field, arrowhead and horn hunting, trapping coyotes and riding dirt bikes. Each student, from kindergarten through seventh grade, read his/her own poem in front of all the people at the Crook County School District Board meeting. These plucky Bobcats were a great hit with their audience of adults!
