McKinley Elementary School’s Art Showcase and Poetry Slam

Last week McKinley Elementary School hosted an Art Showcase and Poetry Slam. McKinley’s faculty, staff, parents, guardians, students, and guests viewed student artwork, participated in poetry related art projects, and heard poetry performed live by McKinley students. The Art Showcase and Poetry Slam was part of McKinley’s celebration of National Poetry Month and included its annual Art Showcase of students’ artwork. This event represented only a sampling of the ongoing endeavors of McKinley’s school community as it works daily to become effective readers, writers, creators, and thinkers. The poems and art will continue to be displayed throughout the school and, as described by a McKinley teacher, “The school continues to hear the voices of young poets and artists ring in our minds and hearts!”
