WBES Poetry Slam
The 5th grade students at WBES participated in their third annual "Poetry Slam". Each student writes their very own piece of original poetry and then they compete. There are 3 rounds of competetion where students "slam", or perform, their poetry. The students presented their poems first to their classmates and then to a panel of judges. By the 3rd round, the top 20 poems were selected and these students competed for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The students and teachers had a great time and parents and the 4th graders and other guests enjoyed hearing their poetry.
