On Dec. 9, 2016, the Half-Pints Poets of Stowe, Capitol View, Garton, Hillis, King, Morris, and Findley Elementary competed for the golden boom box! Much love to all of the poets who took the stage, and to Stowe Elementary for earning the title of Grand Slam Champions. Our resident photographer, Eduardo Arana, captured the magic of our Half-Pints. Enjoy!
On Saturday, September 24, Elhondra Brazzle and Julio Delgadillo were invited to perform at the Library of Congress National Book Festival Poetry Slam in Washington, D.C. We are pleased to announce that Elhondra placed first and Julio placed second, representing the city of Des Moines with pride. Keep your eye out for these two seniors as they will continue inspiring the world with their poetry. You two make us so proud!
