Schickler Elementary presents final Poetry Cafe of the school year

Fourth graders at Schickler Elementary took turns this afternoon presenting the poems they had written under the direction of Mrs. Richardson and Mr. Sporman.

This afternoon, fourth grade students at Schickler Elementary packed into the school’s library for the final installment of the popular Poetry Cafe. Students from the classes of Mrs. Richardson and Mr. Sporman took to the stage to share their recently-penned poems with their peers along with a large group of parents and staff members. The students presented all types of poems — Limericks, Acrostics and even Biographical.

Twice during the program, parents, staff members and students were asked to take part in an “open mic” session to share poems they had authored or others that were meaningful to them.

And after the adults had shared, there was no shortage of students eager to present another poem. Everyone in the room seemed to be excited about the opportunity.
