In June we got the chance to film two promos with WKYC featuring our amazing poet-athletes. We spent two days writing rhymes and perfecting performances about how to fight the summer slide. Be sure to keep an eye out for both promos throughout the month on WKYC.
Below meet the four awesome poet-athletes, Jason, Morelia, Paige and Stacey who are featured in the two promos!
Watch both promos below!

An amusing park
there’s rides and slides
some fast like a jack rabbit
it can make you cry
or feel like you’re going to die
The Ferris wheel
spins like a clock
going up might be scary
coming down tickles a lot
The merry go round
not up and down
but the horses chase all around
with my brother Nick
sometimes we both get sick
Some things are dangerous but also fun
especially the black widow
this is my adventure
trying to figure out where to go
