Special Event - Black History Month Contest!

In honor of Black History Month, Rock Lake Elementary School is having a contest for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students in which they pick an African-American civil rights leader, activist or influencer to write an essay and do an oral presentation about. If you are mentoring a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade student, this can be a great topic to talk to them about in the next couple of weeks! Encourage your mentees to enter the contest, help them pick a person to write about, etc. Let me know if you have any questions or want more information about the contest.
