Maple writes to the White House

Last week, SCORES poet-athletes at Maple Elementary worked together to write a letter based on Barack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech. They split into small groups and filled in parts of the speech based on their own ideas about what problems plague our communities.

The activity culminated on Friday's game day, where the students took turns reading passages from their letters and chanting "Yes we can!" in unison on the soccer field. SCORES staff collected their signatures and we plan to send the letters from every school to the White House.

Maple girls read their letter before the game.
