Hillsboro High students, staff and parents enjoy a poetry slam as sophomore present poetry they wrote. Teacher Jessica Bowman (standing with paper on the left) evaluates her student’s performances as they recited their group and individual poems that they wrote during a performance last Wednesday at the Rhubarb Market in Hillsboro. Since the previous Wednesday, the sophomores had been working on writing Spoken Word Poetry in class, and after they spent additional class time Monday and Tuesday preparing, they got to showcase their original works at the Poetry Slam event.
