Celebrating Black History Month at Hickory Grove Christian School

To honor the African American contribution to United States history we have planned several activities and events to celebrate Black History Month.  Students have been excited about helping with the many student led activities being held throughout the month.

Our 7th grade students used IPADS to create interactive digital presentations highlighting African Americans in the fields of science and math.

Students in grades 6-12 are creating several displays, one honoring Dr. Martin Luther King and the other spotlighting various African Americans who have made significant contributions to society.

High School students will have the opportunity to attend African American History seminars held by Mr. Coltrane each Friday during lunch to learn about the rich history of African Americans.

Our art students have created a dynamic art display featuring important African American figures that will be displayed in the cafeteria.

Our performing arts students will hold a mini concerts showcasing African American song and dance during high school lunch.

I have been blessed by the hard work and enthusiasm our students and staff have put forth for these projects and performances.  As the month progresses we will post pictures and videos highlighting all of these events on our social media sites and blog post.
