As an end-of-year literacy celebration, students from Duffield Elementary School enrolled in Katie Clare’s, John Llanes’ and Karen Pitka’s fourth-grade classes recently invited special guests to attend their “Poetry Alive” celebration.

The creative students took the stage and recited both original works and pieces written by poets such as Kenn Nesbitt, Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky. Their original works explored the genres of “I Am” and “Color” poetry, along with entirely original titles and subject matter such as “Where Does Poetry Hide?”, “I Need to Find A Place” and “My Awesome Dogs.”
