Break a Leg It’s Showtime!

This week we combined forces and both of our after school Poetry Clubs came together to have one final practice for the Clissold Student Showcase this Wednesday. Students are practicing poems about recipes, about bravery, about standing up to bullying, and about how our rooms can be our sanctuaries. I can’t wait to see them shine! Wish our students good luck as they get up on stage to share their amazing poems with their fellow Clissold classmates.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.
