Sound School will be participating in the annual Connecticut Council of Language Teacher’s Poetry Recitation Contest. Students recite poems from a pre-selected slate of poems in one of the languages below and compete against other Connecticut students at their level:


Ancient Greek

Mandarin (Simplified)

Mandarin (Traditional)










If you are interested, complete the form below and Lori Blank will send you the poem slate to browse. The competition is April 21st, but you need to complete the form below by February 12th. Once you choose a poem you are committed, but not until then, and we can chat at that point if you are unsure. Fill out the form at this link.



TOMORROW’S Fun Friday will be a Poetry Slam Party hosted by Melissa. As Amanda Gordon said, “…quiet isn’t always peace.” Come ready to make noise with poetry you have written or poetry you just love.  You may read a poem from another author, share your own poetry, or absorb the energy. See you Friday the 5th. As always, look for details in your Grade Level Google Classrooms. Current Sound School students only. The link to the event will be in Google Classroom grade level classrooms at 10:15am Friday morning.



Next Friday’s Friday Fun Day will be an Among Us Party hosted by Katie. Please join us for some hide and seek and task completion and lots of teamwork and deception. Laugh with friends new and old. You will need to download the App on your phone or tablet in advance. We cannot help you with that part. Codes to join games will be given out in the Meet. All discussions will be voice only in the Meet.
