The mad rush to the end of the school year is about to begin.
When the kids said the PSSA exams were coming, the only appropriate reaction was dread. Not because of the tests, but because of what that signaled -- the beginning of the Spring Frenzy and the looming mad rush to the end of the school year. As we transition out of a mild winter, everything begins to accelerate. Baseball and softball seasons begin, which means evenings and weekend wrapped up in practices and games. Every musical ensemble presses for more time in preparation for the year-ending concerts and there are spring field trips to consider. With an eighth grader in the house, there are also plans to be made for the middle school finale. All of these create a giant jumbled mess on the calendar and try as we might to control it, we …

In celebration of National Poetry Month, a group of fourth-grade students will hold a poetry reading at the end of April.
On Thursday, April 28th, Stephanie Badulak and her fourth grade class will descend upon the Southampton Starbucks to host their annual poetry reading. April is National Poetry Month after all and Badulak feels the event is the perfect way to honor it – as well as celebrate all the things the class has learned about poetry over the course of the year. “The kids have written several poems throughout the year,” said Badulak. “We did limericks, haikus, and something I call simile poems. We learn about rhyme, rhythm, and all those things.” Each student that participates in the event will be reading two poems – one written by themselves and another by a favorite, published poet. It’s a great way for a ten-year-old to dip his or her feet …
