Announcements for February 12, 2019

The theatre students are selling carnations for Valentines Day. Order a carnation at lunch and send it to someone special. If you place the order we will deliver during 1st and second block on Thursday. Carnations are 1 for $2 or 2 for $3. Place your order and write your message at lunch!

This month is black history month. Black History month started in 1926 when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for Negro Life announced that the second week of February would be Negro History Week. Woodson wanted a week to celebrate the accomplishments of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora because historically, the history of African American people was omitted from United States history. Over time, Negro history week became Black History month.
