Evergreen Celebrates Black History Month

(This entry was written by Tonya Breland, Principal of Evergreen Avenue Elementary School.)

Students at Evergreen Avenue Elementary School celebrated Black History Month in a culminating school-wide event Friday February 29th. The program’s theme was “Making a Difference,” recognizing the contributions of noteworthy African Americans to our country.

Every class prepared short presentations for their parents and the student body. Presentations varied and included a song about Dr. King & equality, a parade of inventors, several creative PowerPoint presentations of individuals who have made a difference -- including some presentations with voice-overs and video, individual presentations, recitations of poetry and song, and a mock Oprah show. Our preschool contributed to the d├ęcor by creating a peace sign with their hand prints.

Everyone’s efforts contributed to the program’s overall success.
