Dear Families,

February is the annual observance of Black History Month, a time to recognize the achievements, contributions, and culture of African Americans. In 1926, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, often called the "Father of Black History," chose February for this observance because the birthdays of abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln are in this month. In 1976, the weeklong celebration was expanded to Black History Month.

At Chardon Hills, each classroom will create a display to honor a famous African-American, the fourth-grade music concert will play tribute to Black History Month, and the school will hold its ‘First Annual Poetry Slam Assembly’. At the assembly, each classroom will perform a poem (found or created) highlighting a famous African American or Black History lessons our children learned during the month. This is also the second month of our new pro-active social skills initiative to help students make ‘better choices’. Please refer to Mrs. Turner’s section of the newsletter for more information about this important social skills initiative.

As always, Chardon Hills Magnet School seeks opportunities for the community and school to support each other. Please feel free to share your ideas to help us find such occasions. And please continue to communicate with Chardon Hills to ensure we keep our children successful.
