This year, SaulPaul teamed up again with Austin Jewish Academy’s (AJA) Karen Hidalgo for the Annual 5th Grade Poetry Slam. This is the 3rd consecutive year that SaulPaul has been involved in this unique poetry slam. What makes this poetry slam special is the fact that students get to perform with SaulPaul and share their own self-written poetry.
Seen as the highlight of 5th grade, this poetry slam is an opportunity for teachers, parents, and the community to celebrate the students and their accomplishments at the end of the year. Additionally, it gives students the ability to express their hopes and dreams for their future and to Be the Change.
This year’s poetry slam was another memorable performance thanks to the hard work of SaulPaul and Austin Jewish Academy’s 5th graders. After this year’s heartfelt slam poetry event, Austin Jewish Academy’s students and families already looking forward to what next year’s poetry slam has in store!
