Greetings Peirce Families,
This years African American Heritage Showcase created an opportunity for our students to demonstrate the theme - The Fight for Justice: A Call to Action. If you were unable to attend the African American Heritage Showcase this link will take you to several videos that were shared during the celebration, many of which were a call to action.
March is an opportunity for us to learn more about the contributions of women in our society. The 2019 Women's History Month Theme is "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence". Check out this link to learn more about this years theme.
We are now one month into the Middle School Elective classes and are receiving a lot of great feedback from students - we will survey students close to the end of the year to help in planning for next school year.
