Two schools, 40 miles apart, helped celebrate National Poetry Month with the creation of one poem. Students from Saugerties and Ellenville Junior/Senior High Schools collaborated on a poem that conveyed their thoughts and feelings about wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participating teachers and students were each asked to write a line inspired by the prompt "behind the mask." Saugerties High School Librarian Sari Grandstaff and Ellenville High School Librarian Asha Golliher took the lines and assembled them into one poem.
