This website is all about the elementary poetry anthologies published by Denver Public Schools. There have been six volumes so far, full of wonderful poems and artwork by Denver students from Kindergarten to fifth grade. The most recent volume, Everyone is a Masterpiece, is shown at the top. It features over two hundred poems from schools such as Ashley Elementary, DCIS at Ford, Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy, Montclair School, Bradley International, and Sabin World School. It has an introduction by Colorado's Poet Laureate, Joseph Hutchison. Copies are available at local bookstores such as The Bookies.

At this site, you'll find selections from our previous anthologies, photos from various celebrations, and other materials. Just use the menu at left. Thank you for visiting!
