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.
