Higgins Hawks Watch Over BostonHIGGINS ART STUDENTS SUPPORT "BOSTON STRONG"
Students in Mrs. Nelson's grade 8 art classes brainstormed ideas on what to put on a poster to show support for "Boston Strong". Students came up with the design idea and R. Arons drew the design. Students helped to color the poster and also signed "the sky". Thanks to Mrs. Nelson's daughter for hanging the poster at the memorial site on May 7.

Look at the new snow
like a blanket on the ground
keeping the earth warm.

Snow blankets the Earth
the air is chilly and grey
winter is walking.

Empty, barren streets
with only the greenless trees
in the bitter cold.
