Poetry KaBaam!

HMS Students celebrated Poetry Month at the 2nd Annual HMS Poetry KaBaam on Tuesday, April 23. Fifth through eighth grade students, selected by their language arts teachers, poured into the library for this event, many with poems to read. A fair number of these poems were student written. 

Amelia French, Jordan Brown, and Samantha Mangino, Poetry Out Loud participants from YHS, came down to kick off the reading. After each poem, audience members were invited to write down on a slip of paper how the poem made them feel. The resulting reactions echoed each recitation. The PTO provided snacks, for which everyone was very grateful. The mood was joyous, respectful, and thoughtful!
