Each February, citizens of the United States celebrate Black History Month. We take this time to pause and reflect on the history, cultures, and contributions of African Americans to our state, our nation, and our world. This special time started way back in 1926. A man named Carter G. Woodson came up with the idea of setting aside a week to celebrate the history of African Americans. The week was expanded into a month-long celebration in February 1976 and remains that way today. Here at Patrick, our students will learn about Black History Month in several ways. Teachers will share information in their classroom lessons, each class will participate in a door decorating contest, and classes will be able to participate in learning activities in our Makerspace. Check out our Parent Newsletter to learn more about how Patrick is celebrating Blach History Month.
