Poetry Off The Page Performance=Positively Amazing! Plus important dates...

Last Friday Grades 2-5 took part in the Poetry Off the Page Performance in our Media Center.  Performers Marty Barrett and Pat Bell, assisted by Josiah _____, performed Yeats' the Wild Swans of Coole, Carroll's Jabberwocky, Dickinson's A Bird Came Down, Thayer's Casey at the Bat and others. They used these poems to illustrate similes, metaphors, litanies, haikus, radio dramas and other concepts. Students had the option of sending their poems in advance- it was thrilling to hear Marty, Josiah, and Pat perform our students' work!

This performance was made possible via a grant from Athfest Educates.  We can't thank you enough Athfest.  You rule!
