Celebrating our students - because they deserve it!
Prescott High School students in English IV class continued a poetry tradition this year called "Across the Generations."
The project started in 2017 when graduating seniors at the high school met with seniors at the Prescott Nursing and Rehabilitation Center to learn life lessons from the Greatest Generation. Together they created the very first book of "Across the Generations" poetry.
The resulting booklet captures the conversations in a form of poetry call found poems. The website, Poets.org, describes a found poem as “the literary equivalent of a collage”, compiling words and phrases from other sources.
The inaugural project in 2017 inspired Prescott educators, Mrs. Tracey Budworth and Mrs. Kathy Temple to ponder what graduating seniors could learn from other groups. In 2018, they took the seniors "back to where everything started for them: kindergarten." The result is a collection of creative, amusing, and hopefully poetry that honors the simple things in life.
