Tilden School celebrates ‘Poem in Your Pocket Day’

As part of National Poetry Month, today was Poem in Your Pocket Day – and West Seattle’s Tilden School (WSB sponsor) celebrated! Just in from Tilden’s Laura Wood:

Tilden celebrated a beloved tradition, Poem in Your Pocket Day, today. Adults and children in all grades celebrated, bringing poems to share with each other. Throughout the day, poems were pulled from pockets and shared in the hall, in classrooms, and on the playground.

We encourage everyone to join us in celebrating poetry. Stuff a poem in your pocket, and share it: today, or any day!

P.S. Another National Poetry Month celebration in West Seattle is happening at C & P Coffee (also a WSB sponsor) Saturday afternoon.

    This is so cute!  I love this school.  Both of my girls went here, and it was the most amazing experience for them and our entire family.  We miss you Tilden!

    I still remember one of my daughter’s poems for this great Tilden tradition.   I lost my invisible puppy, when we were out walking today, she disappeared into the bushes, and totally faded away…  Such sweet times.  Heartwarming to see it continue!
