The Jefferson Elementary School Art and Music department celebrated Black History Month. In Art classes with Ms. Kruglinski and Ms. Davis students learned about Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence and Romare Bearden. While learning about these artists students focused on the important contributions that these African American artists made to our nation¹s history. In Music classes with Ms. Van Doornik students learned about the important role music has played telling stories and providing encouragement and hope throughout the history of African American experiences in our country. The month long celebration culminated with student artwork decorating the hallways and a school wide assembly.
