Celebrating Black History Week

Celebrating Black History Week

We had a great time celebrating Black History Week! Students and staff dressed up to represent their favorite Historically Black Colleges and Universities and to represent the beauty of black culture.

Students got to hear Wesley’s parents reading books by African American Authors (via submitted videos) and brought in their own favorite books and poems to share with their classes. Some of the books included:

  • “Crown an Ode to the Fresh Cut” by Derrick Barnes
  • “I am a Pretty Little Black Girl” by Betty K Bynum
  • “I Got the Rhythm” by Connie Schofield-Morrison

MYP students created a video that highlighted different African Americans that made a mark in their future career fields and shared videos of poems and songs.

We love seeing how classes choose to honor the legacy of black Americans in their door decorations every year, and this year was no different! There were some amazing contenders, but three classes won a pizza party for lunch:

  • 1st place: Ms. Cook
  • 2nd place: Ms. Bess
  • 3rd place: Ms. Parmer 

Take a tour of some more of our door decorations and student projects in this video!

Staff and families, thank you for participating and helping black culture come alive for our students! Check out even more photos in the gallery below.
