Sutterville students inspire through poetry

e-Connections Post Sutterville

Students from first to sixth grade presented original poems to a packed crowd at Sutterville Elementary’s Annual Family Poetry Night on Thursday, November 13.

Prior to the poetry showcase, John Allen Cann, Sutterville’s Poet-in-Residence, worked with students in every classroom, helping them explore new and creative ways of expressing themselves through poetry.

Students had a chance to share their creations with fellow students during a school assembly, or on Poetry Night in front of a family audience.

The goal of the Poet-in-Residence and Family Poetry Night is to promote students’ growth in literacy, critical thinking and participation in the arts.The experience is made possible by the Sutterville Elementary PTA, and is one of many activities the school and PTA partner on to promote student success.
