Student Poet Wins Guitar

Sean McDermott
Country music star Tim McGraw’s new song, “Humble and Kind,” encourages listeners to show kindness and compassion toward others through small acts that, in turn, make a large impact.

Scholastic Book Clubs recently held a contest that required entrants to write a three-or four-line stanza which might inspire others to act humbly, kindly, and compassionately, just as this song invites us to do.

As part of their poetry unit, all sixth grade literature students at the School of the Madeleine were asked to write a poem for the contest.  Poems from all students who desired to enter were mailed last month.  Sean McDermott’s poem was chosen as one of ten winning poems in the country!

He received a guitar signed by Tim McGraw (his teacher Mrs. Gonzalez is now eagerly awaiting her signed Tim McGraw photograph.)  

Congratulations to Sean and thank you to all of our sixth grade poets who entered the contest!
