Celebrating National Poetry Month

The English Department spent the month of April celebrating National Poetry Month. Students studied a variety of poems and poets, including inaugural poet Amanda Gorman's "Chorus of the Captains." Genesis students wrote their favorite verse of poetry on the sidewalk outside of school and took part in a Poetry Cafe where they read original poems. The school community celebrated National Poem in Your Pocket Day and students wrote original poems for a school-wide poetry writing competition. Congrats to the high school winners: Lauren Mendoza, Samantha Chan, Alyssa Zito, and Grace Mugnolo. Congrats to the Genesis winners: Ashlan Galante, Andrea Coppa, and Cameron Esposito!
