Gussied up in their finest western wear, our poets reinvented the Typewriter Rodeo inspired the by original head honchos in a workshop held two weeks prior. The decorations of boots, flowers, vintage typewriters and even a student designed logo sparked ideas for spontaneous poems that left students with smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts. Check out a few of the poems student composed at our rodeo.
Special guests included EISD Board President Colleen Jones, EISD Director of Humanities, Beth Keith and members of the press. Take a gander at the article below that was published in the Westlake Picayune and the Austin American Statesman to learn more about our rodeo.
Special thanks to 5th grade teachers, Ms. Mojica and Ms. Steinberg, Ms. McLaughlin our Instructional Partner, Ms. Ricter our Librarian and Ms. Ricketson our Ed Tech for heading up this incredible event. We hope to see ya'll again next year when the Typewriter Rodeo Junior comes back into town!
