Alpha Parent Learning Center’s ACE Poetry Contest Winners Announced
By Riley, ACE Poetry Contest Mascot, Alpha Public Schools
While National Poetry Month may be over, the thirst for learning at Alpha Parent Learning Center is never quenched! Recently, our ACE Poetry Contest winners received their awards for writing amazing poems during their English class.
While we dogs and cats always understand what is being told to us and we communicate to our owners pretty well (if they don’t understand, it’s usually their problem), the students at the Alpha Parent Learning Center are learning English. They learn how to tell their stories in English and gain confidence while doing so. Arf. That’s the best.
Parents tell me that they really look forward to April each year. The Parent Learning Center has participated in the poetry contest for many years and it’s a time when parents can read poems, practice all they have learned in their English classes and let their creative juices flow. Remember, poems come in all shapes and sizes.
The Alpha Parent Center ACE Poetry Contest winners are:
1st Prize – Laura Galindo
2nd Prize – Antonio Torres
3rd Prize – Martin Chavez
“I just want to thank all the people who made this program possible,” said Laura Galindo, who is so appreciative of ACE for providing a space for parents to learn and become better advocates for their children and for their community.
I know on good authority that the ACE team is honored to bring poetry to the ACE Learning Centers. I know because I’m, like, the ACE Poetry Contest Mascot.
“It’s so wonderful to see our parents gather weekly to learn new skills, share resources with each other, and continue to build on ways to better support our students and our schools,” said Karen Martinez, Parent Learning Center Manager.
