Phillip Shabazz Returns to CMS
We were fortunate to host another exciting arts residency in our schools last week. Columbia Middle School welcomed poet and author Phillip Shabazz back to work with Mrs. Tamika Spruill's 6th grade and Mrs. Council's 7th grade ELA classes. Mr. Shabazz led students through the writing process for 4 days offering encouragement and feedback along the way. Poems poured out of the students and many were shared aloud in class. This residency was sponsored by a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, in-kind donations by Pocosin Arts, and support from Tyrrell County Schools. We'd also like to thank our legislators for continuing the fund the Grassroots Arts grant.
