Roslyn Elementary Schools Celebrate Black History Month

During the month of February, elementary students across the Roslyn School District learned about the stories and achievements of African Americans.

At Heights, students took part in an interactive challenge called the Black History Month Scavenger Game. Each day, classroom teachers received three envelopes with clues about a celebrated Black American. After the name of the person was revealed, the class searched for a photo of that person in the hall.
