Poetry Contest

Each student in the school, from Kindergarten on up, memorizes a poem for competition within his or her class. Students are judged on poise, memorization, clarity, and interpretation. The top three students in each class then recite their poems at our annual Poetry Contest in November. The purpose of the competition is to train our students in public speaking, to encourage their love of poetry, to build their confidence and poise, and to entertain and edify those who come to the contest.
