After learning about poetry in class, 4th-grade students then participated in a Poetry Slam. Students performed both original poems and favorite poems. Winners from each class were voted on by the students, and these students went on to the Poetry Slam and were judged by School Board member Joe Long and Principal Natalie Albers.
