On April 19, students from Valley Stream Memorial Junior High School and Central High School attended Poetry Day at Adelphi University. Two ninth-graders were recognized with awards at this event, which was attended by more than 200 hundred students from 17 high schools across Long Island.

Ilyana Lewis won a citation for her poem, “I Am Not a Poet,” and Adam Thompson won an Overall Excellence in Poetry award for his entire poetry manuscript.

Memorial will host its annual Poetry Slam on Thursday, May 18, when students from all grades are invited to perform their own original poetry or recite published poems or songs from memory. Those interested in participating can sign up with Mrs. Cazzetto in room 311.
