Check out this beautiful bulletin board tribute to Black History in America thanks to the talents of Mrs. Giannetta and PTA President Lisa Alberts! Students have been learning about many of the famous black Americans that adorn the “shirts” of these women. Each morning a fact is read during the morning announcements about a famous black American or important event in black history.
