East Lake Loves Poetry

East Lake students and staff marked National Poetry Month by participating in Poem In Your Pocket Day on April 29. The event encouraged students and staff to select a poem, carry it with you, and share it with others throughout the day. Library media specialist Ms. Schwen worked with students throughout the week helping them find a special poem or create their own poetry. Students and staff were encouraged to take a poem from the various "pockets'' hanging on the walls throughout East Lake. East Lake student body even got to enjoy seeing Mrs. Poveromos' 3rd graders recite the poem "Keep a Poem In Your Pocket" By Beatrice Schenk de Regniers during the morning news broadcast. This wonderful experience allows everyone to enjoy and appreciate poetry.
