It was a night under the stars, as the fifth-graders at St. James Elementary School showed off their poetic prowess during the school’s annual Poetry Café on April 26.

In the transformed gymnasium, invited guests lounged on cozy couches, sat at café tables complete with dimly lit candles and snapped their fingers as each student shared their original poetry. The Poetry Café gave students a chance to not only show off their writing skills, but also their public speaking and presentation skills.
