Hello Irving Families,
In celebration of Black History Month this year, Irving proudly presents African Heritage Week February 24th – 28th (see attached flyer for details). This will be an exciting, week-long schedule of activities designed to engage students and to highlight the history, achievements, and contributions of African Americans to our society. Please be sure to mark your calendars!
Additionally, to help culminate our Black History Month and African Heritage Week celebrations, all of our students will be working on a collage project entitled, “Black is Beautiful”, on
Friday, February 28th. The finished works will then be displayed throughout the school.
These collages will be created using images taken from predominantly African American publications, such as Essence Magazine, Ebony Magazine, Jet Magazine, etc. If you have any magazines that you could donate to use for these collages, please send them in with your child to school. Also, feel free to search media outlets for positive images of African Americans and print in full color. The more images to pull from, the more beautiful these projects will be!
Thank you so much for your help and support!
