Poet in Residence at Norwich Elementary

Thanks to a grant from the Ohio Arts Council, the Norwich PTO, and ISPTO, Norwich students have been working with an author, poet and librarian. The Poet in Residence, Nancy Kangas, spent time in each classroom inspiring students to find their passion for poetry.
