Black History Celebration A Huge Success!Yesterday's Black History Celebration was a grand success. Mr. Jahleel Deberry did an outstanding job as Master of Ceremony. I was so impressed with his confidence. He did an awesome job!!! Mr. Stover delivered an informative and interesting account of Black History while Mrs. Susan Ingram shared with us her beautiful rendition of "Lift Every Voice and Sing". Mr. McCloud's poem was delivered beautifully and the message will live on in all of us. he is a grand speaker. What a great experience for our students to see the WSSU Steppers. Our kids were wide-eyed while they were performing. The Gospel Choir Members from Galilee Baptist Church sang and played beatifully. It is always such a wonderful experience for our students to hear others perform. What great role models for our kids!
I am also so very proud of our Pep Squad under the direction of Ms. Tryla Green, Ms. Alisha Taylor and Mrs. Lallave. I love watching them perform and so does our student body. It takes a lot of practice to be that precise and entertaining. They get better every time we see them. Way to go! Coaches, we appreciate you so much!
Speaking of dance, our Honors Dance Team, coached by Amanda Stevenson, proved again why they are stand-outs in our district. They also get better and better. Their performance was excellent and enjoyed by all. The costumes were just gorgeous and the team was focused and driven to show the authenticity of the dance. AMAZING!!!!!!!!
Mrs. Farthing also did an incredible job with her students. The Honors Chorus students sang beautifully and were enjoyed by all. I know this was a lot of work for Mrs. Farthing, especially since our students were involved in All County Chorus, the night before! Well done team.
Hooray for Mrsa. Washburn's 4th graders who made wax historical figures come to life. They did a marvelous job in their preparation. Way to go!
Of course, a lot of credit needs to be given to Mrs. Amanda Gordon and her team: Mrs. Maeretha Hopson, Ms. Farthing, Ms. D'Lisa Smoot, Mrs. Marilyn Gilliam, Ms. Alisha Taylor, Mr. Stover, Mrs. A. Brown and Ms. Studevent. This event was a huge success because of all of your hard work, planning, dedication, and attention to detail. I cannot express enough gratitude on behalf of our school. THANK YOU!!!!!
I would also like to thank our behind the scenes folks, Mr. Powelson, Mrs. Uhrig and Ms. Pullen. As always, we appreciate their tech work. Thank you too to Mrs. Hamilton for taking pictures. You all are the best! I hope I didn't inadvertently forget anyone, if I did I apologize, it wasn't intentional:)
