Our school may be closed for students, but through our distance learning program, our students continue to grow, learn, and produce amazing work. One of our school-wide programs in April was participation in National Poetry Month. Across grade levels, students participated in various ways by reading, analyzing, and creating original poetry. We wanted to share a few highlights with our community:
Write Out Loud featured the poem, “Midnight, Just” written by Grade 7 student Audrey Link, in their recent newsletter. Audrey’s poem was inspired by A Small Story about the Sky, a NEA BIG READ selection for 2020.
Medha Ravi, Grade 4, was awarded Third Place in the 3-5th grade category of the annual Carl Sandburg Student Poetry Contest, for her poem titled “Winter Winds.”
Students produced several original poems, including Found Poems for Earth Day, Color Poems, and Mother’s Day poems. Mrs. Palmer, Grade 3 teacher, recommends visiting https://poets.org/.
Thank you to our teachers for inspiring our students during National Poetry Month!
