The students have outdone themselves this year. February is completely packed with an incredible array of programs to enrich learning and to celebrate black culture. In order to support the students as much as possible, we will post all of the BHM events in summary here. We encourage our readers to skim through this list and to mark your calendars to save time for these events.
Individual programs will each get a separate post to support individual event details. Share, dig deep, comment and stretch!
