Poem in your Pocket

In honour of National Poetry Month the Language Arts department has asked students to carry a poem in their pocket (or lanyard...or shoe) at all times. Any teacher, at any time, can stop a student and ask them to read their poem. Once a student has read a poem they must find a new one for the next time they are stopped. Many students have written their own poetry while others have found favourites in books or on the internet. We would like to encourage parents to get in on the fun and ask to see their students' poetic choices. What a great way to raise awareness and appreciation for this important literary form!
