It’s Poetry in the Park! With the weather finally thawing, King’s Fork High School’s English teachers Mrs. Bond and Mrs. Smith led students into the courtyard for some springtime fun while learning more about the importance of the written word! Teachers placed candy and writing prompts inside Easter eggs and hide them around the school’s courtyard. Students went about to find the eggs and complete the poetry assignment contain within (and enjoy the candy treat while working!) Students were given a set amount of time to come up with their short poems before presenting on the courtyard stage.

Winners were drawn today by the Bulldog administrative team including Dr. Byrd, Mrs. Boone, and Mr. Thrift. Winners of the $5 gift cards are as follows:
