Led by Mrs. Adrienne Lyon and her dedicated team of volunteers, High Road Academy made Black History Month memorable. Students were able to engage in various activities that highlighted the contribution of Africans and afro- American individuals and their culture. Every week students chose between a cooking project that highlighted African southern cuisine, watched a movie that celebrated the moments, memories and people in black history, or attended a class for the history of African dance and music. Fun Friday Black History Month also included field trips for the weekly behavior incentive, which included a basketball game, roller skating, and bowling. The students had a great time and one student was even overheard commenting “why don’t we keep doing this after February?” It was a wonderful celebration.
