Celebrating Black History Month Through Song

Celebrating Black History Month Through Song

Diversity was celebrated at Northeast Elementary School during the Black History Month program on Feb. 17. Students in pre-K and kindergarten created self-portraits, which served as the backdrop for a performance that drew a large crowd of parents and family members. In the week leading up to the celebration, each child wrote about why he or she is special and unique, and participated in a schoolwide read aloud.

The program opened with a welcoming song from West Africa, “Funga Alafia.” A kindergarten singalong was followed by a musical production, “The Crayon Box That Talked.” Each class dressed in a different color, turning the center of the gymnasium into a large rainbow. The message of the show was: “We are like a box of crayons. Every one of us is unique. And when we get together, our classroom is complete.”
