8th Grade Students Rock Poetry Slam!

In an effort to help her 8th grade students "get excited" about poetry, Mrs. Bonner showed her students several clips from Poetry Slams done nationwide.  Her advanced class caught the bug and took the challenge! They were encouraged to find a poem they would like to present in a creative way, or write their own in recognition of Black History month.  When the final production went on, we had about half the class presenting their original works, and the rest very creatively presenting the poetry of some well-known African American poets. Ms. Godwin, our Student Advocate and Ms. Wright, our Media Coordinator, assisted in pulling the production together and encouraging the students' creativity.  Some of Ms. Scarboro's students also joined in the fun.  A multitude of talents were on display as they presented to their 8th grade peers, teachers, parents and members of our community.
