Students in the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade classes at Carver participated in the Pacolet River Flood Project by writing haiku in response to reading articles and viewing pictures from various sources about the June 1903 flood.

We read the articles and discussed what we saw in the pictures as a class, and then we wrote haiku in response individually. We then illustrated out haiku and selected the very best haiku, from the five we wrote, to publish in our book for display at the culmination of our project on April 27, 2011.

In addition, we recorded our selected haiku for auditory presentation to our peers and guests. We are proud to share our haiku and hope all who view or hear them enjoy them and sense a feeling of the devastation caused by the flood in Spartanburg County that long ago spring in 1903.
