Seizing The Day to Celebrate Black Agents of Change

Our 19th annual Black History Celebration on Feb. 7, 2014 was a joyful and purposeful event. Sponsored by the Parents and Teachers Association (PAT), it brought the community together to recognize historical Black agents of change and to inspire our students to become change-makers as well.
