reFRESH + your classroom


TO   LK  T


reFRESHing the classroom provides opportunities for educators and students to engage in the benefits of poetry as a communication tool and a creative process.  



with poetry

We encourage educators to integrate at least 10% of students' learning environments with poetry on a consistent basis to uplift 100% of each student's access to: thrive, belong, and expand connection. Investing in the arts, specifically poetry within the academic calendar year improves not only educational value, but mental health and wellness for the whole person.

Implementing this standard elevates more than the classroom experience.

By cultivating whole students, educators and parents are activating the next generation of unabridged, multifaceted, and confident citizens. 

What area of focus does your classroom want to improve,
because poetry improves them all!

My son really enjoyed meeting you! He came home and you were the first part of his day that he told us about. He was the one that told you your poetry made him feel something. Thank you for being awesome! 🥹 - Ms. Thompson, proud parent
