Eighth Grade Advisees Write Anti-Racism Community Poems

Spanish Department Head Samara Spielberg’s eighth-grade advisory wrote community poems to express how they are feeling about the current state of our nation.
Each boy wrote a poem filled with different perspectives, narratives, experiences, and emotions.

Then, as a group, they wove the poems together to create one community poem about the world at the moment.

Our community finds ways to create outlets and spaces for our boys to communicate about what’s happening in the world.

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
