In Great Neck South Middle School, the students celebrate their poetry by hosting a Poetry Cocoa House after school. This is an opportunity for students in different classes and grades to bond over a steaming cup of hot chocolate and poetry.
All of the poems are unique, written by student poets. Teachers and other faculty members serve the many students who come to this event, giving them a steaming cup of hot chocolate as they read and write poetry. Our imaginations run free while our souls are warmed by hot chocolate.
Since the temperatures are going down, this would be a great opportunity for your school to try this also. Who wouldn’t enjoy a steaming cup of hot cocoa and hearing poetry?
