Highlighting our youth poets: Marie Reed Elementary School

NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 14th Annual Poetry Slam!. During the two-night culminating event of the fall season, each of the 27 schools DC SCORES serves had the opportunity to perform original poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members. 

On the first night of the Slam!, DC SCORES flagship school Marie Reed Elementary flexed its muscle with lines such as "life doesn't bother me at all" and "Reed really got it goin' on" as the students lifted houses to demonstrate their collective strength. They also illustrated the bilingual nature of their student body with an individual poem performed in Spanish.

Check out Reed's 14th Poetry Slam! performance on stage!
