Dear Friends & Colleagues-
As New Mexico CultureNet enters its fifteenth year, I am happy to report that our Poets-in-the-Schools (PITS) program is thriving. Each year PITS serves 2,000-4,000 middle and high school students, in Santa Fe alone! This year we launched Writing Across the Curriculum at Capshaw Middle School. As the project name suggests, we place poets work in science, social studies as well as English classes. We will continue this initiative, and others, next year.
At Santa Fe High, CultureNet supports the Poetry Rocks class by sponsoring poets each week during the school year. Also at Santa Fe High, our poets work in Special Education, Teen Parenting and ESL/ELL classes.
As New Mexico CultureNet grows its programs, we need a few concerned individuals to serve on our board of directors. There is no obligation to donate, although donations are gratefully accepted and carefully applied. What we need is your ideas, connections and ability to help us get the word out about our programs.
If you're interested, I'd like to talk with you. My contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-474-8500.
Thanks for your consideration,
