SAY IT WITH POETRY

  • In April 4 and 5, National acclaimed author, Kathi Appelt presented instructional poetry workshops to the English classes throughout the day.  The workshops were fantastic and the students loved them!!
    The students then spring boarded from the workshops to share original poetry at the festival.  Nearly 211 students participated. This is the 2nd year.  Stacy DeLuca, Laurie Keim, Nat Viso and Kathleen Astrella facilitated the event. 
    It was a thrill to have the students share their original pieces that were written in their English classes.  This forum allows students to share their innermost thoughts, losses, victories, challenges and triumphs.
