In celebration of National Poetry Month, Junior-Senior High School’s English department hosted a Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 21.

Students embraced their 21st century skills by using the 4Cs – creativity, communication, collaborative and critical thinking – by analyzing and writing poetry in their classrooms.
 
Throughout the day, classes gathered together in the library during their English periods to share their favorite poems with their peers, either original works or a poem by one of their favorite authors. Students were invited to share a poem with the audience.
