Poetry belongs to us all. The objective of our poetry program is to ignite a passion for poetry
in every child.

Through our Poet-In-Residence Program, students in grades 3-6 are immersed in the process of experiencing poetry. Most learn that being a creator of poetry can be a rewarding experience; playing with words and examining the power and mystery of language can be exhilarating.

The poetry program encourages students to support each other in the process of writing poetry and helps them work toward writing a piece that is published in a West Side Poetry Anthology. Students gain a sense of pride and accomplishment after writing their own poem and reading a favorite poem aloud to their peers.
