Student Poets Perform at Poetry Slam

The district-wide Evening of Spoken Word and Poetry Slam was a night to remember!


Hosted at the Fox Theater in Old Town Salinas, the Poetry Slam featured over 20 student performers from across the district. These talented young poets and spoken word artists took the stage to share their powerful, thought-provoking pieces with the audience. It was inspiring to see our young minds use their voices to express themselves and address issues that are important to them.

Before the student performers took the stage, the crowd was treated to a hilarious and entertaining performance by the Monterey County Improv group. Their quick wit and improvisational skills had the audience laughing and cheering throughout their set. We were thrilled to see so many community members come out in support of our students and their creative expression. We thank everyone who made this event possible, but especially Salinas High School teacher James Nichols, who has worked tirelessly to organize this event for our students!
