1. A Celebration of Poetry Program

Julia Thacker, an award winning poet and teacher, has joined the Center/Sylvester staff for the past 8 weeks. During this time, she has conducted interactive workshops with kindergarten through grade four students. Ms. Thacker has inspired them to express themselves in poetic form by engaging them in creative writing and sharing. An evening of poetry was planned on Thursday, November 20, 2008 to celebrate the students work and culminate the end of the poetry program.
