Happy February!


February is Black History Month and to celebrate all the diversity we have in Baltimore County Public Schools, we are focusing our monthly classroom guidance lessons on celebrating and appreciating our differences. Kindergarten, first, and second grade scholars will be identifying the many characteristics that make them unique and special. Third grade students will discuss cliques and the importance including others. Fourth grade students will read a book related to segregation. Fifth grade students will further their learning regarding equity and equality using classroom examples. 


Also, back by popular demand, is the second annual Black History Month Art and Creative Writing contest! Students in all grade levels are invited to participate by submitting artwork or creative writing that shows evidence of how an African American(s) hero shaped our community and/or our lives. The hero can be past or present. All submissions are due to me by Feb. 20. Two winners from primary and intermediate will be announced at the end of the month. We look forward to seeing all the submissions!
