In an effort to expand conversation around Black History Month, the students used their creative juices and made posters depicting their thoughts on what the month means to them. There was a huge variety of projects, each showing so much creativity! The first place winners of the contest, which was held during CHAT groups in January, will receive a free breakfast courtesy of the CHS CHAT Committee.
Ms. Principe's CHAT group too the prize, with two other groups from Mrs. Canny's room and Mr. White's room close behind. Ms. Principe's group prepared a poster on Mary McLeod Bethune. Mary was a leading educator and civil rights activist. She also founded the National Council of Negro Women. Mary can be quoted as saying, "I plunged into the job of creating something from nothing...Though I hadn't a penny left, I considered cash money as the smallest part of my resources. I had faith in a living God, faith in myself, and a desire to serve."
Congratulations to Ms. Principe's group!
