Lakesiders were greeting in the morning by several "pockets" scattered throughout the school, full of a variety of published poems.
|A "pocket" full of poetry hangs on the wall.|
During lunch, recess, and hallway passing time, students and staff were able to take a poem or leave a poem, choose one to keep, or contribute a poem of their own to a pocket around Lakeside.

By the end of the day, many pockets were depleted of poems, while others held priceless original poetry contributed by our Lakeside Lions.
|Some of the poems students added to the pockets themselves.|
It was wonderful to watch students sneak a poem into their pocket in passing, read a stanza aloud to a friend, and even gather to sing poetry together on the playground. Thanks, Lakeside, for being a part of such a fun day celebrating poems!
