• Poetry

    The Pearce Hall Poets is our Spoken Word/Slam poetry group at Pearce Hall. This group, founded in 2017 by former teacher Andrea Crisp, is currently facilitated by Katherine Burke, a teacher who is passionate about written expression and language arts. Approximately 25 students each semester participate in writing and performing their poetry. At the end of each semester, we have a final slam poetry event where the students perform in front of the school and invited guests. Our students have embraced this program and through this have the ability to earn a half-credit each semester. The poetry program helps to increase students' confidence, self-esteem, and public speaking skills.
