celebration of Poetry Month, the Nogales High Poetry Club will be hosting its
first annual poetry performance show–WORDS:
Literacy Through Poetry, held at the Little Theater on the Nogales
High campus at 6:30 pm. It is spoken word at its finest! With one of the
most diverse groups on campus, the Nogales Poetry Club will perform/read
original poems as they express themselves with haikus, sonnets, metaphors, personification,
symbolism, rhyme imagery etc.
The goal is not to just put on a good show, but to
enhance literacy through poetry. We aim to extend the uses of poetry by
harnessing student enjoyment of poetry as a means to improving the level of
literacy. A love for poetry and word play can help students become not
only better readers and writers, but also poets in their own right.
In addition to the Nogales Poets, a segment of the
night will include an open mic, where students, staff and the community will be
able to share their own poetry, or their favorite poets work. Space on
the open mic list will be limited, so prompt arrival is suggested. Mark
April 29th on your calendar as we celebrate WORDS!
