During February, GHS is excited to celebrate Black History Month through our “American Legacies: Exploring culture and contributions through the content” program. Each day of February we will highlight one famous national or state African-American via our student announcements. Students in US History and Government classes will prepare slideshows highlighting the accomplishments of African-Americans and the Civil Rights movement, while students in Ceramics and Art classes will create artwork inspired through their research of Black History. During the week of February 19th, the slideshows and artwork will be on display during lunches. In addition, our Step Team will perform during lunches on February 25th, our chorus will sing songs inspired by African Americans, our jazz band will play music inspired by African American jazz musicians, and our Dance Company will perform dance routines inspired by African Americans. We are extremely excited to celebrate the accomplishments of these great American heroes!
