EHS librarian Nancy Brown and English teacher Andrea Smith-Yahia celebrated National Poetry Month in April.  Students wrote poetry on the sidewalks outside the school building.


National Poetry Month was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.
