Black History Month Celebrations Update

Students are working hard on their Black History Month tech projects. Some are doing the work at home and others have chosen to stay after school to do research on an important or influential figure of black history or culture and are creating interactive tech projects to show what they've learned. The most amazing part? Over 25 students have signed up already, and I'm getting permission slips every day. This just shows that our students are AWESOME!


Projects are due Thursday, February 11th and the Black History Month Committee will be staying after school to hang the QR codes to get the halls ready for the Interactive Black History and Culture Museum. The museum should be ready to go by Tuesday, February 16th.


Please feel free to check out iPads to use for the museum experience.


Here is the information for the Black History Celebration.

I have made the schedule to where no one misses their Specials times. Specials teachers will be in the gym during the performance with the grade levels that have specials at that time. Grade levels with specials later in the day will still get their allotted planning time.
