Our vision is to connect, engage, and inspire all students in the Ayer Shirley Regional School District to reach academic excellence. We, the educators of the Ayer Shirley Regional School District, will instill habits of reflection and inquiry to challenge our students in setting ambitious academic and personal goals. Students will develop a strong voice to express thoughts and ideas in the community and the confidence to showcase their talents and successes in preparation for entry into college and the world of work. 

 

April is National Poetry Month!

April 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month, which was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets back in 1996.  Over the years National Poetry Month has become one of the largest literary celebrations in the world.

At Page Hilltop Elementary School our teachers, students and staff love to write and poetry is one of the many forms of written expression that we learn about.

We would like to encourage all of our students to spend some of their vacation time writing poems to share with all of their friends and teachers.  Here’s what you can do:

 

Option A:   Copy one of your favorite poems and bring it to school when we return on Monday, April 25th.

Option B:  You can write an original poem (or two) yourself.  You can choose from a variety of forms of poetry:  ACROSTIC, HAIKU, LIMERICK, CINQUAIN.

Option C:  Do both  “Option A”  &  “Option B”

 

We would LOVE to read some of your original poems.  We will then select some of the poems and (with your permission) read them over the intercom during morning announcements, hang some of them on display around the school, post some of them on our school website and have some of them read at our May PTO meeting!
