Students at John J. Pershing were given an opportunity to enter the Creative Communications Poetic Power poetry contest.  Assistant Principal, Dr. Laura Melucci brought this contest to the school’s attention.  In her years as a former middle school ELA teacher, Dr. Melucci had her own students enter this contest and become published poets. 


In the fall of 2015, Mrs. Jennifer Mariano, Ms. Noreen Gillespie, Ms. Christina Regalbuto, and Ms. Christina Dekki all had students enter this contest resulting in a total of 26 student winners.  These 7th and 8th grade students were notified of their acceptance for publication and are now published poets!
