Black History Month was established in 1926 with the hope that contributions made by African American men and women throughout history would not be forgotten.

 

To encourage the coordinated teaching of the history of American blacks in the nation's public schools, it is celebrated the second week of February. Two US leaders who helped African Americans gain equality have their birthdays in February as well: President Abraham Lincoln and human rights activist Frederick Douglass. The United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom honor the legacy of the African American men and women who played an integral role in history.

 

This month, let’s remember the people whose inspiring stories have contributed to our country’s betterment, from Harriet Tubman to George Washington Carver and many more. For a helpful link with more information to share with your family and children about these heroes click here and here.

Class Promise

 

We want to recognize Beth Poston’s 3rd Grade Class for something special. As a class, all students agree to this “class promise” and each signs as a symbol of their commitment. We love to see this dedication to learning and character building. Great job, Beth Poston, for inspiring greatness!

 

Read&Write Program

 

We also want to highlight the Read&Write program in action at Mountainview. This is another great example of the ENGAGE-Blended Learning Challenge. Seen above, the program is being used in Kasey Johansing’s class. This is a word prediction program that intuitively assists students in learning how to write. Great job, Kasey Johansing, for inspiring ways of new learning.
