I hope everyone is enjoying the above freezing temperatures. It is a great day to be outside.
February is Black History Month. Holden will be celebrating the influence of African Americans through music. The different genres that we will highlight include gospel, jazz, motown, and hip-hop. Each day we will focus on a specific artist from that genre. Students will enter the building with a song playing and a student will share information on morning announcements. At the end of the month, we have two parents who will be sharing music at a school assembly. During the assembly, students will hear gospel singing and the playing of African drums. Parents are welcome to attend the 30 minute assembly. Teachers will also be doing activities in their classrooms to highlight African American achievements in different areas other than music.
We only have 4 more basketball games left to usher and then ushering will be finished for the year. We still need help with three of the games. Please click on the link below if you can help out.
