Hankey Action Takers Honor African American Achievements

Black History Month is an annual national celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.  Hankey IB scholars, Zoe and River Johnson, decided to use Black History Month as an opportunity to take action and practice the learner profile traits of inquiry, communication and risk taking!  This amazing sibling duo committed to sharing the stories of notable African Americans with the Hankey community every Tuesday and Thursday, for the entire month of February.  Thanks to Zoe and River, we have learned about the achievements of Henrietta Lacks, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Jackie Robinson, Lindsay Harding, and Shirley Chisholm, and we look forward to next week’s stories.

Parents- if you would like to continue to explore the lives and accomplishments of African Americans with your learners at home, here is a forced copy link to an awesome library for Black History Month that Mrs. Reid recently shared in her virtual counseling office and Counselors Corner. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/11KuSB3WnEZL97CKiD9SZA5Nd5yClii1MQCj8rSamqtQ/copy
