(PDF) March 19, 2018 – At the March board of education meeting, Nicole Fisher, Supervisor of Alternate Programs, reported on Black History Month events and activities that occurred in the schools. She stated, “While we want to ensure that black history is taught throughout the school year, February is the traditional time to focus attention specifically on the contributions of African Americans to our history.”
Student activities included a variety of projects and lessons about inventors, civil right leaders, military heroes, artists, and athletes. Lessons in the classrooms also included studying specific eras and events. For example, 4th grade students at Preston Elementary School researched the Harlem Renaissance of the early 20th Century and its influences in American History.
Projects from all the schools were on display at the board of education meeting.
