April is National Poetry Month. To celebrate, we’ve been reading, writing, and listening to poetry all month. This Thursday, we’re participating in an event called Poem in Your Pocket Day. On Thursday, everyone at Crocker will have a poem in their pocket ready to share! If you’re planning to be at school, make sure you come prepared!

This is the perfect week to congratulate our student authors whose poems will be published in the 2012 Young American Poetry Digest. Students wrote original poetry and submitted their work to the Digest. Congratulations to the twenty-six Crocker poets who had their work selected to appear in this year’s book:
