Longwood Schools hold poetry slam

Longwood School District held its first Literacy Day Saturday at Longwood Middle School in Middle Island, and for one of the main events, high school students participated in a poetry slam.

“It was a great opportunity for kids who don’t normally have the opportunity to express themselves to do so,” said high school English teacher Grace Ioanna, who helped organize the event.

About a dozen students participated in the event, with many sharing personal stories about teenage life.

“It is amazing to see how they progressed from the first time they read a poem to the second time or third time they read it – one student was able to memorize his poem.”
