ELP hosts slam poetry event

The students are listening to a poem by Kennedy Ortmeier ’19 that she found online. ELP had their slam poetry day Oct. 21.


Teacher Sue Cline’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) classes held a slam poetry day Oct. 21. Her third period class read poems that they had written or found online. They used the entire class period, performing their poems before taking votes on which ones were most original and the most creative. Jack Lucas ’18 wrote Harambe poem that took first place for most creative, and Nick Dahlen ’18 who wrote a poem about running took first for best original.

The class finished by giving out Halloween-themed prizes, varying from glow-in-the-dark sticks to pumpkin antenna headbands. Dahlen chose spring-out eyes, while Lucas chose the glow-in-the-dark bat necklace.
