Before and After School Programs

Poetry at Dawn

Our Poetry at Dawn program is held every Monday and Friday morning from 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM. All students are welcome to come and learn about poetry and create their own masterpieces. This class introduces students to the basics of all forms of poetry and students read, discuss, then write their own poems based on the same themes, rhythms and styles they’ve read. Students are encouraged to read their prose aloud to the other poets in the class. The poetry class is also visited by our school mascot, a tortoise named Bodie, that the children hold and read to each Monday and Friday morning. This program culminates in an assembly of poetry reading and recitation.
