Come join us on the park bench as we share poetry from our summer book stacks! We invite our Fox Meadow students, families, and staff to read aloud favorite poems from books or from writer’s notebooks in the park.
Bring along your Gail Borden summer reading logs and receive special treats including a new book for your home library!
We look forward to celebrating your continued reading throughout the summer! Starbucks will also provide lemonade for us to sip while we savor poetry together in the sunshine! Consider staying a bit longer at the park after our Poetry Park Live, to have a “book-nic” with your family: books + lunch = “book-nic” Bring a blanket or a beach towel to sit on!
If you would like to help out or you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs.Thompson at [email protected]
