Students’ Black History Month Silent March Speaks Volumes
Principal Alyssa Roye met with the Student Council, comprised of four fifth-graders, to discuss how the school would celebrate Black History Month this year. Council Treasurer Craig Stevenson proposed the Silent March, feeling it would allow the Pre-K to Fifth-grade students to share the wisdom and accomplishments of their people in an impactful way. The march delivered on its promise with student-created posters. It was moving, meaningful and powerful, and the children felt proud, not only of their history, but of themselves.
