West Park Kindergarteners Learn About Historical African Americans

Feb 9, 2021

 

Throughout the month of February, in honor and celebration of Black History Month, students at West Park School are learning about important African-Americans who have made a significant contribution to our country, broken barriers, and helped inspire so many people.  Posters of these famous black Americans are displayed throughout the halls of West Park School and include historical information.  Our kindergarteners are able to recognize and learn important facts about people such as Rosa Parks, Barack Obama, Jackie Robinson, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Students drew pictures in their journals to help depict these key figures.
