Rocky Run Middle School held a Poetry Slam on May 8, and eighth-grader Charlie Flynn won first place in the humorous category. Classmate Marc Manaloto came in first in the dramatic category.

Each English class had a poetry contest and selected one student to represent that class. Altogether, about 40 students competed and read their poems in front of an audience of some 250 people. Staff members did the judging and the students received gift cards as prizes.
