In honor of Black History Month South Plainfield Middle School students were given an opportunity to show their oratory skills. Students were offered a chance to recite a poem written by an African-American poet by memory. After choosing a poet the students recited the poem in front of the entire student body according to his/her grade level! This is the Middle School’s second year offering this competition and it has been well received. The winner is chosen by middle school teachers and receives a gift card. It is hoped that the event will continue to encourage acceptance and increase self-confidence in all students. We can’t wait for next February!
