Time to get ready!

This week we started to get ready for our Clissold Elementary assembly! All of our after school Poetry Club participants will be reading an original poem in front of their classmates for the Student Showcase the after school arts programs will have a chance to show off their talents. Students picked the poem that they wanted to read out lout and took some time to make edits and changes. Then we got on our feet and started to rehearse. Students are so exited and I’m having a great time working on their performances. I’ll have more updates next week!
