Black History Virtual Assembly

Big picture

Daniel Wright is excited to announce a virtual assembly on Thursday, February 11 at 2:00 p.m. where in-Person and remote learners will have the opportunity to live zoom with former Cubs player and Hall of Fame inductee, Andre Dawson. Mr. Dawson will talk with the students about his experiences and struggles as a black player in Major League Baseball. DW students and staff will interact live with Mr. Dawson and he will be happy to answer students’ questions.


In-Person learners will watch the live zoom in their pod’s learning space at DW. Remote learners will be connected to Mr. Dawson through a zoom link that will be emailed directly to them by Thursday morning from Mrs. Blackley, Mrs. Powell or Mrs. Littlefair.


Both Remote and In-Person learners will access their classes via this modified schedule to accommodate the virtual assembly. Please note the February 11 Bell Schedule for Remote and In-Person Learners


This event is exclusively being offered to our DW students and staff. We would love to have offered it to our entire learning community, however both Zoom and Event Operations Associates would like to limit the number of participants. We ask that our remote learners do NOT share the link with other family members so we can stay within the limits of our agreed upon attendees.
