Half-Pints: You Have Our Whole Hearts

December 16, 2016

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!
