Black History Month
Hello McManus Families and Happy Black History Month!
Every year schools across America celebrate Black History Month. This is a month when we celebrate the achievements and legacies of Black Americans. At McManus, students will learn about heroes such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and other civil rights icons that helped shape our country. Other times, McManus students may learn about Black Americans who enriched American culture in the areas of music, art, literature and sports. I hope the students share with you the wonderful influences and legacies of Black Americans.
Victory in Unity
Wake Up to Reading
Pink Shirt Day - February 28th
Why a Pink T-Shirt?
The idea comes from two incredible Nova Scotia high school students in 2007. When a fellow student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, they decided to take a stand. They went out and bought pink shirts to give to fellow students to show their support for a boy who was being bullied simply for wearing a pink shirt.
