Linkers spent the month of February focusing on Black History in several ways. Each morning students learned about the achievements of a number of African Americans throughout history during morning announcements. Students in grades 5 through 8 researched, planned, and created bulletin boards commemorating significant times or people in Black History in the U.S. and then each team prepared a presentation for Morning Circle on their event or person. See some of their bulletin boards below.
Kindergartners too learned about famous African Americans, including Dr. Mae Jemison, Elijah McCoy, Madame C.J. Walker, and many more.
The month culminated in the annual Black History Month program. This years’s program was fabulous radio show, “Let Freedom Rain,” written and produced by Mrs. Johnson, performing arts teaching artist at Link and featuring Link scholars and staff. The program included art by Mrs. Howard, Link’s fine arts teacher, as well as student art, and music by the Link Choir, directed by Ms. Santiago, music teaching artist.
