PS4 Celebrates Black History: Black History Month Assembly

Under the direction of Social Studies Teacher Mr. Harris, students create a timeline.

At our annual Black History Assembly, students from grades 2 through 5 celebrated a few of the many achievement by African-Americans.  Two students were awarded with certificates for participating in an essay contest and representatives from the Harlem Swing Dance Society showed how Swing Dancing in 1930's Harlem has influenced the hip-hop dancing of today.  Under the direction of Mr. Means, class 501 shared a powerful poem about Harriet Tubman and Social Studies Teacher Mr. Harris guided students in creating a timeline with the names of seven African-Americans in the fields of science, literacy and civil rights.  To see the full video of the performance by class 501, click here or click the photo below!
