We just learned that the Cascadia Poetry Contest is taking place again this year. We had one student who was published last year, and it would be great to have some submissions from EY again this year. Our fourth and fifth graders are currently reading, analyzing, and writing poetry in the CKLA program, and there have been many fabulous poems written by our students thus far in their poetry books. Students can use the poems they have already written. They just need to be typed according to the the specifications in the contest rules. Teachers will be introducing this contest and sending home a flier as well. The submission deadline is December 31st, 2016.
