This is a student-only event, where the kids recite a self-selected poem for their classmates, arts faculty, and teachers. The students select their poems ahead of time, and practice them to prepare for the event.
The audience happily snaps in appreciation after each performance, and the kids have a great time.
Students are welcome to bring a pillow, blanket, or towel to sit on, as well as a drink and a snack (no candy, please). All items should fit in the students' backpacks.
