Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history. (history.com)

It’s easy and convenient! The dentist and qualified staff come and set up a dental clinic in the school and perform a complete dental exam regardless of ability to pay. The exam includes: cleaning, X-ray, fluoride treatment and sealant. They can fill cavities if needed.

Some people see a closed door and turn away.

Others see a closed door, try the knob,

If it doesn’t open, they turn away.

 

Still others see a closed door, try the knob,

If it doesn’t open, they find a key,

If the key doesn’t fit, they turn away.

 

A rare few see a closed door, try the knob,

If it doesn’t open, they find a key,

If the key doesn’t fit,

THEY MAKE ONE!
