Wesleyan School is pleased to announce that fourth grader Tatum Krauth recently had a poem published in Highlights magazine.

“I love to write,” said Tatum. “I saw the entry form in the magazine and decided I wanted to give it a try.”

Tatum wrote the poem, completed the entry form, and addressed the envelope before she even shared her idea with her parents. “Tatum came to me with an addressed envelope and asked me for stamps and if I’d mail it for her,” shared Tatum’s mom, Jessica. “She is very motivated and creative and came up with this idea entirely on her own.”

“We are so proud of Tatum,” said Jason Erb, Wesleyan lower school principal. “She works very hard in the classroom and her commitment to writing shows in her work. Our students and teachers are thrilled for Tatum and excited to have a published poet in our midst!”

The poem can be found in the November 2018 issue of Highlights.
