Black Heritage Celebration Returns to FHS

The 15th annual Black Heritage Celebration takes place on Feb. 15.

FISHERS, IN: Since 2008, a special tribute of culture, achievements and connection has been held during the month of February at Fishers High School. What was originally developed by parents to unite the Fishers community, The Black Heritage Celebration has evolved into a student-led community event. Attendees of all ages and backgrounds are invited to take part in the free event on Wed., Feb. 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The event will feature interactive displays, student performances and presentations. Representatives from different historical black colleges and universities will be available to answer questions for prospective students and families. There will also be a ‘step and stroll’ featuring members of the Divine Nine sororities and fraternities.

According to organizers, the Black Heritage Celebration has grown in attendance throughout the years. Students hope to continue the tradition, exposing more families throughout the community to highlight the accomplishments and contributions of black people, especially in Fishers.

The Black Heritage Celebration will be held inside the College and Career Academy at FHS. Attendees should enter through door #19, located off Promise Road.

Snack Attack - Fishers Youth Assistance Program

NBE is pleased to announce the return of the Snack Attack program for those students in need. This program, supported by the Fishers Youth Assistance Program, is designed to provide students a little extra nourishment for the weekend until they can receive a hot meal at school on Monday.

Here's how the program works. Your student will pick up a small sack of food to be taken home over the weekend. The sack is filled with individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars, fruit cups, pop tarts, peanut butter/crackers, Goldfish crackers, etc. The type of snacks will vary each week. Please let us know if your child has a peanut allergy as he/she will receive a special bag of peanut-free snacks.

There is no cost to you or the school. This program is open to students that qualify for the reduced lunch program or have an increased need currently.

To be part of this free program, you must sign up your family online. https://forms.gle/xrKNaxRaLypSqKvV8

If you have any questions, please contact Sherri Leiner, NBE School Counselor at sleiner@hse.k12.in.us
