Lesley Ellis students Catherine Capeci and Hayley Kwoun, both of Winchester, won prizes in the Harvard Coop’s Annual K through 8 Poetry Contest. Catherine, a third grader, won first place for her poems “Pen” and “Pencil,” and Hayley, a second-grader, tied for third place with her series of poems called “Small Injuries.” Each student has her poetry on exhibit at the Coop.

Lesley Ellis has a history of producing winning poets in grades 2-3. Last year, Max Agigian and Fiona Campbell, both of Somerville, took second place in the contest.
