Thankful for Dallas SCORES November

Wow!  Have we been busy!  It takes a lot of work to run 9 schools, but what a joy to be able to say that!  Our poet-athletes are getting acquainted with the new season.  Most of our poet-athletes are new, but are catching on real quickly!  We have already hosted 3 soccer game days, playing 4 games at once between our 9 schools.  The kids always look so excited on game day.  We are also working on preparing for the Poetry SLAM! that will be held in December.  The poems are coming along just fine and some even tend to crack us up!  We can't wait to hear them all! 

We would like to send out a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped put together our 2011 Soccer Ball and to every one who attended that wonderful evening.  Also to the children of Cesar Chavez for sharing their poetry with us that night!  What a great event!

Open Mic Nights are on 11/9 and 11/29 from 6:00pm-7:00pm at the Starbucks on La Vista Drive in Dallas.  Come out and watch our kids share some of their work from this season and grab a cup of coffee, too!  THANK YOU STARBUCKS for hosting us!

Our Poetry SLAM!  will be held at Maria Moreno Elementary  @ 2115 South Hampton in Dallas.  Come out and support our kids and see who will be the next boy and girl chosen to present their work in NEW YORK!
