Black History Overview

African History

February is Black History month. Black History month is the month that we embrace the achievements and major contributions that African-Americans have contributed to our society. At Barth Elementary School, Mrs. Shila Brim, Mrs. Rochelle Lloyd, educational para professionals; Ms. Leslie McCurdy, and Ms. Robin Bradshaw collaborated, and worked diligently with several students from their classrooms to create a plan to celebrate Black History Month. Each day a student articulated an African-American fact of the day during morning announcements.

Romulus Elementary Perform

The first through fifth grade students at Romulus Elementary sang songs for peace and harmony. On February 24, 2015, students performed at the Romulus High School Auditorium. Students narrated and sang songs about dreams of peace, hope, and freedom.  The performance provided a time where students could honor the dreamers and leaders of the past. It was also a time that students and staff pledged to live the dream and keep hope alive.

Athletes Return

Heritage Celebration

During the month of December,  5th graders at Barth Elementary had the opportunity to share and learn about their classmate’s heritages and cultural backgrounds. The three week project began with each student tracing back their family’s heritage as far as they could. This experience included having students interview their oldest living relatives and learn about what their childhoods were like. Many students made fascinating discoveries, such as Codi Clark’s great grandfather who earned a Purple Heart in World War II.

As part of an economics unit, the students had to choose a local cause and develop a plan to raise money for that cause. The students brainstormed local places and voted on the Romulus Animal Shelter.
