Portland high school students' poetry featured in Poetry in Motion: Three Portland public high school students presented their poems at a Portland bus stop Tuesday morning, part of the Poetry in Motion 2014 program. The program features 10 poems to be displayed on TriMet buses, benches and shelters throughout the region. http://www.oregonlive.com/multimedia/index.ssf/2014/09/post_32.html#incart_river
Excerpted from the Oregonian…
Julianna Mazziotti, 16, of Lincoln High School, read her poem, "Voila d'Amor."
After each student read her work, they whipped off a sheet blue draping to reveal an excerpt of their writing, printed on bus benches on Southwest Salmon Street at 14th Avenue, next to Lincoln High School . The 2014 program features 10 poems to be displayed on TriMet buses, benches and shelters throughout the region. In addition to the students' work, four Oregon poets and three national poets will also have their work displayed on TriMet facilities. In all, the 10 poems will be displayed on 40 buses, 22 benches and 11 shelters around the region.
Viola d'Amore by Julianna Mazziotti, Lincoln High School
Dulled gloss on my deep red body,
each of my silent six strings fastened by pegs,
I float with no articulate notes.
Yet, in your ears, a sweet silvery sound resonates:
the non-existent bow emerges from your imagination,
gliding across my vertical lines—
lively vibrations bouncing,
Your hands embrace me,
my backward "S" shapes,
for halo-like music
to dance gracefully through each parcel
of unfilled air.
Lincoln High student Theodora Mautz, whose intellectual curiosity makes her an outstanding student in fields from science to music to law, scored the top possible score on both the ACT and the SAT college entrance exams, an apparent first in Oregon. Way to go Theodora! (Lorijo Daniels / Lorijo Daniels Photography )
Lukas Schwab Honored
Thank you to the Pearl Rotary for honoring Lincoln students every month. Congratulations to Lincoln's September Student of the Month, Senior Lukas Schwab, for his inspiring presentation this morning on coding, programming and the educational opportunities that best inspire authentic learning and innovation.
Kudos to Lincoln Senior Sophie Keller who will be playing the role of Anne, the conservative Senator’s daughter in La Cage aux Folles with Pixie Dust Productions, opening at the Newmark Theatre on September 20th through October 5th. If you’ve seen the movie The Birdcage, it’s basically the same plot, only La Cage is a musical. Here is a link to learn more about the show or buy tickets.
Sophie will also have a role in the play Ivy & Bean at the Oregon Children’s Theater in November.
