Annual Poetry Slam was a Success

Attributions: 

Last Friday, our students came together to participate in our annual school-wide poetry slam. Students started by writing and performing their own poems in class. Some students then were invited to participate in the school slam. This year was the first year that we required all students in the school slam to perform their own poetry. Teachers agreed that overall the quality of the poems used was great and the performances were much better than years past. 

Students who performed in the school slam received a T-shirt and some prizes, and the top 3 students received awards.

Our judges picked their favorites who will now advance to the district poetry slam. Here are those students:

Marcus AhKuoi
