Babylon Junior-Senior High School students, staff and administrators joined together for the seventh annual Poem in Your Pocket Day Celebration on April 28. The outdoor celebration was originally scheduled to take place on the school’s baseball field, but chilly weather conditions moved it indoors to Rowe Hall.

Students gathered in Rowe Hall to read aloud their favorite poems. Student presenters prepared favorite and original poetry for the occasion. Poem in Your Pocket Day provides students a creative outlet to express themselves, practice their public-speaking skills and to revere literature.

Students in grades 7-12 at Babylon Junior-Senior High School have been celebrating National Poetry Month throughout April. In addition to studying the works of esteemed canonized poets, students discovered the works of contemporary lyricists as well. Students experimented with reading and composing varied styles of poetry, including drafting their own original pieces.

Throughout the school, English language arts classrooms, hallways, student cafeterias and the library media center were transformed into student poetry exhibits. Prior to the Poem in Your Pocket Day Celebration, students shared poetry over the morning announcements.
