Poetry Month Events Keep White Mountain Students Cool

Events Held in Lovejoy Chapel, Bethlehem Public Library

Two rather cool events came to The White Mountain School during National Poetry Month.

Earlier that day, Palos visited English I and AP classes to demonstrate how to take poetry “from the page to the stage.”

On April 29, students took part in a community poetry reading at the Bethlehem Public Library.

The availability of both events were a result of Faculty Member Becky Beno’s work to promote National Poetry Month at The White Mountain School and in the surrounding community.

The 2019 Talent Show

Seniors Raise Money for Class Gift

A packed house of students, their families, faculty and White Mountain staff turned out to watch the annual Talent Show in the Lovejoy Chapel during Spring Family Weekend. The Friday night show featured performances by students from The White Mountain School and Creative Edge Dance Studio. Showcasing the talents and humor of our students, the slate of entertainment served as a fundraiser for the Class of 2019’s Senior Class gift.

Each year, the senior class raises money to fund a gift of their choosing that will enhance the community experience at The White Mountain School. This year, the Class of 2019 has announced that it is raising money to create a space for a fire pit that can be used by the community year-round. This year’s class gift fundraising target is $5,000.

Organized by Development and Alumni Affairs Director Scott Hunt, The Talent Show was hosted by Emcee Rex Amer and included dance performances, live music,  and poetry and spoken word readings. The culminating performance by the “Backwoods Boys,” who crooned a popular ‘90’s boy band ballad, “I Want It That Way,” really brought the house down and underscored the importance of being a good sport in the spirit of supporting The White Mountain School community.

You can watch the evening’s performances in their entirety on YouTube.
