January Family Night
January Family Night was another success! The theme of January was poetry! Hillis had a guest performer, Words Taylor, perform his original Spoken Word Poetry. After his performance, Words Taylor, worked with students at stations (designed by our third grade staff) to encourage our young developing poets! The stations included; a Poe “tree” station, Reading Poetry, and Found Poetry stations. At the Poe “tree” station, students wrote original poems on a leaf and added it to our poetry tree. At the Reading Poetry station, families enjoyed reading poetry from poem books. Finally, at the Found Poetry station, families circled words in a magazine to create an original work with these words.
There was also an open mic night. Students were encouraged to play music, read original poetry, or read poetry they found in provided poem books. Fun was had by all and it was fun to watch the budding performers at Hillis!
The next family night is scheduled for Thursday, February 18th from 5:00-6:30! Don’t miss out!!
