From Poetry to Dessert in Deer Park


The district’s department of world languages and ENL celebrated National Poetry Month by hosting “International Poetry Festival: A Night of Poetry, Milk and Cookies” on April 16.

At the event, students from kindergarten through 12th grade – representing the high school, Robert Frost, JFK, JQA and May Moore – recited both original and famous poems in French, Italian, Spanish and English in front of an audience of family and friends. Students also prepared and performed songs in the various languages of study. The delightful evening culminated with milk and cookies for all.
