Poetry Coffeehouse

This is my FAVORITE event of the year!  I have done this event for several years and each year I love it more.  After several weeks of studying and writing poetry, students performed their original poetry for a packed house.  We set the mood by wearing all black, dimmed the lights, and had jazz music playing in the background.  We even had a "fire" going.  Here are a few students during our rehearsal.

Video was taken of the performance.  Of course, I didn't download it before break, so as soon as we return from Spring Break, I will post the video. 

After the performance, we enjoyed coffee and treats.  Thank you to Starbucks, Panera, Krogers, and Meijers for your donations!  I want to give a shout out to Mrs. C and Mrs. W for organizing the entire event. Thank you to everyone who attended.

Mike and I LOVED attending this event when Scott was in your class.

You deserve a round of "snaps". : )
