Portland's new, official public beach, Poet's Beach, kicked off yesterday with Mayor Ted Wheeler and others taking a celebratory dip. The beach is named after Honoring Our Rivers student poetry engraved in stones along its path. See pictures and a video from the day.
The Port of Portland has invited us to have a student reading at its upcoming Seaport Celebration, August 13. Do you know a student who would like to read his/her submission? Reading on stage is a great way to celebrate and share student talent and the creative relationship kids have to our environment.
Students had the opportunity to showcase their work on Sunday, May 22 alongside invited authors Marilyn Johnston, Richard Mack, Wendy Thompson and Abby Metzger. See the photo gallery from the event.
