In celebration of National Poetry Month in April, third-graders at JFK participated in a poetry contest through the America Library of Poetry.

Third-graders in Nicole Mercardante’s and Renee DeStefano/Maura Thompson’s classes wrote a variety of different genres of poetry and learned about the foundations of writing poetry. Each student submitted his or her favorite poem, and contest winners will be announced in September.
