Black History Month
All schools across the district are having special events all month long to recognize the struggles, events, and achievements of African Americans throughout history.
We are proud of the work all teachers do to ensure that students are aware of the importance of African-American history and it continues more than just during this month. We have many social studies teachers and language arts teachers working together to enhance this month for our students.
