Today's Community Scrapbook features photos from the Poetry Cafe Night at Rock Springs Elementary School. The photos were submitted by principal Josh Davis.
On Thursday, Nov. 7, Rock Springs Elementary School opened a Poetry Cafe in the style of the 1960s beatniks. The fourth grade pod was transformed for the evening into three dimly lit cafes and one food court mixed with the sounds of live guitar music and bongo drums.
Students in grades 3-5, parents, teachers, our principal Mr. Josh Davis, and our Director of Schools, Dr. Jubal Yennie, wore black, snapped instead of clapped, and participated in poetry readings and recitations.
Dr. Yennie shared some of his favorite songs on his guitar including his original song, "The Master." This event targeted many of the common core state standards within foundational speaking and listening, writing, and reading skills, across all three grade levels. The level of enthusiasm and commitment the students exhibited in order to prepare for their performances was impressive.
A special thank you to everyone who participated for making this night a huge success!comments powered by Disqus
