Alden Terrace School third graders have been learning how to become poets by writing their own poems in honor of National Poetry Month.

Students were introduced to a variety of poetic forms before creating their very own interactive poetry books. To immerse students in poetry, teachers Mrs. Spitaletta, Mrs. Valentino and Ms. Neuman taught them about the five poetic elements: rhythm, rhyme, repetition, imagery and shape. Then, the students wrote haiku, concrete, emotion and rhyming poems. The students were excited to create their own poetry anthologies to share with each other and their families.

Students also created original, individual Poetic iMovies. They recorded their expressive voices and inserted images and captivating pictures to capture the essence of their poetry. Then, the classes took part in a “Poetry Movie” experience that included all of their poetry work flowing one after the other.

“It was so inspirational and uplifting to see and hear, Principal Shawnée Warfield said.

Assistant Principal Shona Beldo added, “Third grade scholars spent the month celebrating the joy, expressiveness and the pure delight of poetry!”

Letter from the Superintendent - Gotham Avenue Families

May 24, 2022

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

At approximately 1:05 PM this afternoon we were notified by Homeland Security of an incident on Linden Blvd. and 238th Street.  The police advised us to do an official lockout at the Gotham Avenue School.  Out of an abundance of caution, we had all the children throughout the District brought inside.  The official lockout was lifted at 2:15 PM without incident.

The staff and students did an excellent job.  We continue to make safety our highest priority.

 

Sincerely,

Kenneth Rosner

Superintendent of Schools
