Tenth graders went on a field trip this week to see poets perform their work. The event was done by an organization called Day Eight. The event was called “DC Stories Performed by DC Poets.” The group provides access for communities to participate in the arts, through production, publication, and promotion of creative projects.  The students watched four local Washington, D.C. poets perform their work at THEARC in Southeast.  The English 10 classes will be performing their Poetry Out Loud poems in two weeks for the annual competition.
