Scholars’ Students Compete In Poetry Slam
On May 21 five Scholars’ Academy students participated in the CFN 112 Poetry Slam at the Poet’s House in Battery Park City. Josephine Yanful, Tatiana Alejo, Ariel Creamer, David Perullo and Steven Bongiovanni read their original poems with heart and style. Yanful took first place for the middle school with her poem entitled, “Darkened Ages.” “It was truly amazing to be around so much creativity,” said Creamer. The anthology of student poems is now on display on the shelves of the Poet’s House, the largest collection of poetry in North America.
