Congratulations to Gabby Miller for placing second and to Emma Dong for placing first overall in the District Poetry Out Loud contest! Emma recited Safe in the Alabaster Chambers by Emily Dickinson and Don’t Bother the Earth Spirit by Joy Harjo. Gabby recited Golden Retrievals by Mark Doty and A Poison Tree by William Blake.
Both girls are now working on a third poem as they prepare to compete in the state level competition. We wish them all the best!
