Harriet and her family make a plan to escape to freedom.

“Heal the World” Lyrical Dance

This lyrical dance was coached by Ms.Revill, who gives a brief explanation of what the song means.

Meaning:

The song conveys a message of treating each other with kindness & respect, no matter what race you are.

“I Am” Poems

These poems were told by Isaias, Ashley, Exayana, and Mr.A. Most of them do it because they wanted to participate, but do they know what it means? Well, here’s what they mean.

Meaning:

“I Am” Poems highlights a person who has contributed by helping their community get their rights. It allows students to learn about their work, their impact on others, and the accomplishments they have made throughout their journey.

This is especially meaningful as we move from Black History Month to Women’s Month in March.
