Tuesday, January 7th, a 2-hour delay wasn’t the only news happening in Arlington. Students from Arlington Mill High School participated in the school’s first annual Poetry Out Loud contest. Earlier in the year, students in every English class participated in a poetry competition where students from every English class at Arlington Mill had to memorize and recite a poem, competing against classmates for who would win each class-wide competition. On Tuesday, January 7th, class winners then participated in a competition against each other. Arlington Mill High School’s library was full to capacity as contestants competed against each other. Audience members were brought to tears, laughing, clapping and supporting their peers. After a number of awesome performances, Petra Milcicka¬†was chosen as the schoolwide winner who will go on to participate in a county-wide Arlington competition. We applaud our students for their outstanding efforts in this competition!
