Alexander's Fifth Graders made our school proud with the heartfelt free-verse poems they submitted to the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair. 48 of our 58 students received 1st Place Blue Ribbons, while the remaining 10 received 2nd Place Red Ribbons. In addition, Madison Jones was one of only fourteen students honored with a Judges' Award, out of 1800 entries made in the Creative Writing division by 4th through 12th Graders. Only 18% of all entrants received First Place, and 35% Second Place, while the remaining 47% placed Third, Fourth, or received an Honorable Mention. We look forward to hearing our graduating students' recitations at Language Enrichment's Poetry Coffeehouse in Room 16 at the Ludlam Road Campus on April 29.
