Celebrating Black heroes

The Middle School recognized and celebrated Black History Month in February with the first-ever Black Heroes Project. After a presentation from Middle School Director Divya Muralidhara about two of her heroes (Jacqueline Woodson and John Lewis), students and faculty were invited to submit brief testimonies about their Black heroes. They shared over 85 heroes with the community at their last assembly in February. Grade 7 students Rodas and Tessy introduced the assembly and encouraged the community to see this presentation as one of many steps in honoring Black history every day.

Visual Arts Chair Jona Rice is shown above installing the entire presentation in the Arts Center.
