Celebrating Black History Month: Music Through the Ages

On Thursday February 28, our fifth-grade student performers helped us learn about music through the ages as part of our Black History Month celebration. 

During the event, students read speeches they had prepared, performed a scene from a famous musical and then taught us about the valuable contributions that black musicians and performers have made to the arts throughout history.

Fifth-grade students performed as Billie Holliday, Ray Charles,The Temptations, Tina Turner, Destiny's Child, Aaliyah, Drake and Cardi B among many others.
