AT THE HEART OF FEBRUARY

RYMFIRE ELEMENTARY FEBRUARY NEWS

A Message From Principal Lee

I am Incredibly excited that this week starts the first week of Black History Month!

Black History Month is an annual celebration in honor of many African Americans for their contributions & achievements throughout periods in U.S. history.


This month I want to inspire all of our young scholars, on the power of their voice and the influence of their words & actions when positively put to use, which can bring forth significant change in their personal lives as well as in the world.


I also want to voice my amazement & gratitude to all of our staff, faculty, students and parents that are adjusting supportively and braving the impact of the pandemic on all of us.


Thank you for your understanding and for championing on with us.


Principal Travis Lee

This year's Black History 2022 Theme!

ASALH’s Black History themes over the years reflect changes in how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community.
