Poetry Coffee House

Last night the kids' school held a Poetry Coffee House fundraiser. Admission was about 75 cents and then drinks and snacks were available to purchase as well. A small cup of water...and I mean really small...like 1/2 cup...was about 35 cents. One of my friends ordered a flavored mocha for about $3. It came in one of those small styrofoam cups! Cookie bars, brownies, and coffee cake went for about $2 for a small piece. I'm sure they made a killing with prices like that! Oh well, it was for a good cause!

The students could sign up to participate if they wanted to. Erica, Jacob, and Anna Grace all signed up to something, but Will never even considered doing something in front of all those people! Here are a few pictures from the event!

Several kids in Jacob's class did a poem called If I were in a Rock and roll Band by Shel Silverstein. It was really cute! Jacob is on the end in the red shirt.

Anna Grace signed up to recite a poem called Wait, Wait, Wait. She was second to perform and did a great job!

Erica and her friends, Maryam and Jessica, sang a song called Breakaway.

A shot of part of the crowd!

We sat at a table with our friends Namik, Songul, and Shawn.

Here is Anna Grace reciting her poem. The room was candlelit so she is hard to see!
