Students at Beach Street and Udall recently participated in Poetry Picnics to celebrate National Poetry Month, exploring their creativity by writing poetry outdoors. At Beach Street, students went outside with librarian Lisa Cosgrove, writing various types of poems as they sat on blankets and enjoyed snacks. During ELA classes at Udall, librarian Denise Lamattina invited students to the library courtyard. Students drew on their prior experiences and applied their reflective abilities to create and share artistic poems.
