Boyd  Holds Successful Annual Poetry Slam thumbnail254818

James H. Boyd Intermediate School held its annual Poetry Slam on Jan. 19 in the school’s auditorium. To prepare for the event, the 23 participating students chose poems they liked. After weeks of practice, they created slideshows to accompany their poem to enhance the audience’s experience. Student Charlotte McAuliffe served as the Poetry Slam’s emcee, with Jayden Berk as the assistant emcee.

“The Poetry Slam has taught us some very important skills that we will need throughout life in order to be successful, such as being proactive and responsible, as well as how to present and public speaking,”” said McAuliffe, who read the Karen Cira poem “What Is a Friend.”

“Hard work and practice made this year’s Poetry Slam another resounding success,” teacher Marsha McLeod said. “Congratulations to our students on a job well executed, and let this outcome be their catalyst for a successful year.”
