During the month of February, we are celebrating and recognizing the achievements, contributions, and culture of African Americans in the hallway and classrooms at Haines School.
Our teachers are always coming up wonderful ways to integrate reading, math, science and social studies to provide students with hands-on activities. This year students from Kindergarten through 4th grade will participate in, “Haines Underground Railroad”. This interactive adventure will consist of students traveling on the second floor through a series of classrooms each with a lesson on how slaves escaped the southern states and made it to freedom in the northern states.
Fifth through eighth grade students will do independent research or teacher-led research to learn more about the Crisis in Black Education, the 2017’s History Fair Theme. We want Haines students to think about what specific challenges students may face today in their educational environment that may be hindering them from achieving their educational goals and what can be done to address the crisis in black education.
Don’t forget about our Daddy/Daughter Dance on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 5:30 PM. Tickets are only $30.00 per couple. There will be games, photos, and refreshments.
Our teachers will be presenting at the Every Student Succeeds Act Conference in Chicago as well as the National Title I Conference in Long Beach, California in February.
Have a wonderful month!
