- Ways to express oneself beautifully.
- All different styles, no right, no wrong.
- We have many an opportunity;
- Whether it be dance, music, words or song.
- To show what we know, what we believe in.
- If we use our imagination, we,
- Can discover a thing that makes us grin.
- Just try, give it a shot, and you will see.
- Paint your words on the blank canvas of life.
- Eighty-eight eager keys hoping, waiting,
- To be played be a girl whose heart is rife.
- The music floating through the air stating
- That thou is not afraid to be the one
- A true artist's work will never be done.

Bike to School Day
To promote physical exercise and community involvement, students, parents and teachers of Charter School of Morgan Hill enjoy an annual spring tradition of peddling on a seven-mile bike ride as a group along the rural Coyote Creek Trail stretching north from Morgan Hill. About 120 students participated in the May 21 ride.
8th Graders Create Poetry Cafe
Charter School of Morgan Hill teacher Kim Sorenson uses a project-based learning unit for poetry to allow students to transform her classroom into a Poetry Cafe. Students are able to get a drink and a snack if they so desire, and then they study poets and write poetry.

Students get to be chefs through Food Network-inspired class
Once the secret ingredient was revealed in Amy Storlie's Iron Chef cooking class for seventh- and eighth- graders at the Charter School of Morgan Hill, her students immediately began scouring cookbooks and recipe ideas online.
The mystery ingredient this week was bell peppers - 26 of them in a variety of red, green and orange hues - picked from the school's bountiful on-campus garden.
